The Concordia Lutheran Conference is a small organization of Lutheran churches in the United States which formed in 1957. It was a reorganization of some of the churches of the Orthodox Lutheran Conference, which had been formed in September, 1951 in Okabena, Minnesota following a break with Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. It is the remaining successor of the Orthodox Lutheran Conference. The current president is the Reverend David T. Mensing, pastor of Peace Ev. Lutheran Church in Oak Forest, Illinois. It is in fellowship with 7 mission congregations in Russia and Nigeria.
Scriptural Publications, the publishing arm of the Concordia Lutheran Conference, has just published an anthology, Historical Essays by Rev. David T. Mensing: "The Missouri Synod's Slide into Heterodoxy, 1932-1947"; "The Establishment of Heterodoxy in the Missouri Synod, 1950"; and "The Founding of the Orthodox Lutheran Conference, 1951."
The Conference describes itself as "orthodox," with special emphasis on the inerrant, literal interpretation of the Christian Bible. The Concordia Lutheran Conference subscribes to the Book of Concord and the Brief Statement of the Doctoral Position of the Missouri Synod in its doctrinal stance.
