The ELCA was formed in 1988 as a merger of the LCA, ALC, and the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches. It is a mainline Protestant denomination whose membership numbers more than 4.5 million believers in nearly 10,500 congregations around the world. The church headquarters are located in Chicago, IL.

The Presiding Bishop, Mark Hanson, was re-elected in 2007 for a second six-year term. A total of 65 middle judicatories make up the ECLA throughout the US and the Caribbean, each of them having their own bishops and councils.

The ECLA emphasizes education and also ordains women as pastors, with some of them becoming synod bishops themselves. The ELCA clergy mostly subscribe to their understanding and interpretation of the bible (both the Old and New Testaments and fully recognized as the Word of God) using scholarly methods of analysis and reflection.
