Melpa Lutheran Church in Papua New Guinea (MLC-PNG) has a new website


The Melpa Lutheran Church was officially registered and launched on the 9th January 2000 as a third Lutheran Church in Papua New Guinea.

Over 65 pastors, 207 evangelists, 504 male elders, 600 female elders, and over 24,000 followers witnessed the ceremony.

The Church has its own Head Bishop, Church executives, three Ecclesia (District) Pastors, and seven Circuits (with their presidents).

Ecclesia centers were identified for the establishment of respective offices.
The MLC is a homegrown church. 

 It believes in self-sustainability and is based on a strong believe that giving is better than receiving. 

The premise of our belief in MLC is the strengthening of the family. 

The Lord must be invited into the lives of the family.

The husband and wife must provide space in their lives for Jesus. 

The family is the foundation of all organisations, including villages, congregations, circuits, ecclesia, and the Church. 
The other two Lutheran Churches in PNG must be recognised as sister Churches. 

All these churches are based on a single doctrine. 

The philosophy is the same for all Lutheran Churches throughout the world. 

After all the rejections, difficulties, denials and embarrassments, Melpa Lutheran Church has finally come to Christ to have eternal peace and rest. 

 Christian members firmly believe that this church was constituted on a solid foundation because of the many sufferings prior to its establishment. 
This is a unique church because of its origin as a local Lutheran Church

The church aims to expand and be vibrant in its ministry in PNG and abroad.

The Church has over 30, 000 registered members throughout Papua New Guinea

 MLC-PNG aims to operate alongside the Gutnius Lutheran Church and Evangelical Lutheran Church in PNG to uphold the creeds, faith and doctrines of the Lutheran family.
