The Augustana Confraternity
Augustana Confraternity is an organization of confessional Lutheran
who support the work of The Augustana Ministerium.
Members of The Augustana Confraternity rejoice in the forgiveness of sins and the eternal life that is theirs on account of the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus their Savior.
Members pledge to devote themselves to the teachings of Holy Scripture and to the elucidation of those teachings in the Confessional writings of the Lutheran Church, particularly the Small Catechism.
Members are committed to supporting their Pastors in maintaining confessional Lutheran doctrine and practice, and respectfully bringing to the attention of their Pastors any perceived departure from said doctrine and practice.
Members agree to pay annual dues of $40.00.
Members, having voiced their agreement with The Augustana Ministerium’s Constitution, Bylaws, and Statement on the Ministry, will undertake to support the work of The Augustana Ministerium with their prayers, and with their “time, treasure, and talent” to the extent that they are able.
Members may attend the annual conference of The Augustana Ministerium, free of charge.
Members are invited to have use of the materials available on The Augustana Ministerium website and to consult with Pastors of The Augustana Ministerium as may be appropriate in spiritual matters germane to the work of the Ministerium (i.e., the solicitation of names for recommendation to congregations seeking to call a Pastor).
The Augustana Ministerium has never been, nor does it intend to be, a political organization attempting to manipulate the policies of Lutheran Church bodies. While members of The Augustana Confraternity are welcome to pursue political involvement in their church bodies, they are not to exploit their membership in The Augustana Confraternity for this purpose.
