Reformation outreach in Central America

1506 NIC C W gathering

A 2014 Reformation gathering in Martin Luther Chapel in Chinandega, Nicaragua

When Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg in 1517, Central America was an area of new exploration for Europeans. Now, almost 500 years later, the roots of his Reformation are growing in hearts across the area. Through God’s Word people are discovering freedom from the Law-centred Christianity they grew up with, finding grace in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Reformation is important to Central American Lutherans and to celebrate the 500th anniversary the pastors and deaconesses of Iglesia Luterana Sinodo de Nicaragua (ILSN) will  spend the next three years gathering together to study in depth what it means to preach, teach and live by “Grace Alone, Faith Alone and Scripture Alone.”

A small group got together in 2014 in Costa Rica to lay the foundation for these annual convocations. Now the goal is to engage the region in commemorating this important event in the life of Christ’s Church. The ILSN is planning fellowship and community outreach activities, worship celebrations and other events over the next three years that will engage the local media and communities.

You can help spread the Reformation word of God’s grace throughout Central America by supporting this project.

I want Central America to know about God’s grace.
