The purpose of AFLC World Missions is, by the grace of God, to make disciples of all nations through teaching and evangelism.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
We endeavor to go into all the world , proclaim the gospel message, plant gatherings of Christians, and equip these growing churches in the study of the Word of God.

The Committee and its missionaries also accept the Lutheran Church's Confession of Faith in the Apostolic, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds, the unaltered Augsburg Confession, and Luther's Small Catechism as correct expositions of the Word of God.
All doctrinal instruction and action of this Committee and its missionaries shall conform therewith, and to that end the by-laws are promulgated in its Articles of Incorporation.
Our vision for AFLC World Missions is to see the message of the Gospel spread to all nations:
- Planting free and living Lutheran congregations
- Reaching unreached people groups
- Establishing Biblical training
- Developing independent congregations
- Serving those in need with compassion
- Preparing future missionaries for service on the field
