Mexico National Church
The mission work of the AFLC in Mexico is divided up into three entities: The Central Mexican Lutheran Church, The Northern Mexico Outreach, and the work of our missionaries.
The Central Mexican Lutheran Church
AFLC has partnered with the Central Mexican Lutheran Church since 1979. Rev. Samuel Flores was the first president of the CMLC. Today Rev. Milton Flores is the president. The CMLC works in cities in the central area of Mexico.
The Northern Mexico Outreach
The Northern Mexico Outreach consists of one church in the northwest area of Mexico outside of the city of Obregon. This church is pastored by Rev. Gabriel Mercado. The AFLC has partnered with this work since 1978. Partners in Mission Organization (PIMO) has had a great impact on the planting of this congregation. The goal of all AFLC World Missions is that all of our works would become self sufficient. This congregation became self sufficient at the end of 2013.
AFLC Missionaries have ministered in an area north of Leon, starting in Aguascalientes and now in Jerez.

One of the most successful ways of reaching people in Mexico seems to be through Kid's Clubs and youth groups. They are brought to faith in their youth and then discipled to live for Him as they grow.
The Giles family have been busy translating the AFLC Ambassador Sunday School Material. The material is then placed on the internet where people can download quality Bible based Spanish Sunday school material anywhere in the world. The response has been amazing as thousands of copies are downloaded every month. Go to the website.
The Principios Project partners with the Church in Mexico to help them build simple places of worship. Churches and individuals in the United States help congregations in Mexico build churches by sharing the cost. The goal is to raise $10,000.00 to help build one building per year.
