The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod condemns racism and asks its members to combat it in the Church and in society

God’s love for this world (John 3:16) breaks down dividing walls between people (Ephesians 2:13–16). As God’s children, Christians love their neighbor as God loves them (Luke 10:25–37).

The separation of people into nations, languages and groups is a result of the fall into sin (Gen. 11), and is one the aspects of a broken creation God restored through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We eagerly await His coming when all will be one in Him (Rev. 7:9) as pleases Him, as He created us to be.

Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod Document:  Racism: A Christian Response — The Christian response to racism is centered in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is shaped by clear Biblical principles.
