We are a member congregation of The Association of Confessing Evangelical Lutheran Congregations (ACELC), which is a movement within the LCMS whose goal is to discuss and address in a fraternal manner as brothers and sisters in Christ under Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions errors that are either tolerated or opening promoted among us. When you visit this site you may view our Fraternal Admonition document, read the various documentation of errors documents that specifically address the issues which are cited, sign the Fraternal Admonition document yourself, or take advantage of some of the many teaching resources which are regularly posted there.
The Augustana Ministerium has as its stated purpose the support and promotion of a truly Lutheran ministerium. Therefore we see our primary duty as being the support of Confessional Lutheran pastors either with our prayers, our presence, or financial assistance. By these means we our aim is to make it possible for men to stay where God has called them so that they might serve God's people without having to worry quite so much about how they are going to be able to financially carry out their other vocation of husband or father.

The Webmaster of this site writes: "The purpose of this site is to promote, extend, and defend the theology of Confessional Lutheranism, as reflected especially in the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. I am persuaded that this theology is thoroughly apostolic, catholic, orthodox, and evangelical -- in the truest and deepest sense of those terms."
Our congregation is a member of the Northland Lutheran Schools Association, which runs Martin Luther Academy. We have a tuition assistance program to aid members who might like to send their children to MLA. We believe every family ought to send their offspring to a Lutheran school if at all possible. Raise up a child in the way he ought to go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Confessional Lutherans are Evangelical Catholics... It is not we who call ourselves Lutherans. Rather, our adversaries call us that. We allow this to the extent that this title is an indication of the consensus that our churches have with the orthodox and catholic doctrine that Luther set forth from Holy Writ. Therefore we allow ourselves to be named after Luther, not as the inventor of a new faith but as the asserter of the old faith and the cleanser of the church from the stains of Papist dogmas. Consequently, we also do not reject the names “Christian” and “catholic,” nor do we render ourselves unworthy of them by the approval of any heretical dogma, as did the Arians, Nestorians, Eutychians, etc. Rather, we are called “Christians” from Christ as the only Author and Teacher of our faith. We are called “catholics” from our consensus with the catholic faith. We are called “Lutherans” from Luther as the asserter and defender of that faith, but especially as the reformer whom God raised up. + Johann Gerhard, On the Church (Theological Commonplace XXV), § 156.
