Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil
Igreja Evangelica Luterana do Brasil (IELB)

History:
The first LCMS missionary came to Brazil in 1900 at the request of German immigrants living in Brazil. Our Seminario Concordia was established in 1903 and one year later, in 1904, the Igreja Evangelica Luterana do Brasil (IELB) became a district of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The motto of the church for its centennial is “Christ for All.”
