Bad things happen. That is the way it has been since sin entered the world. And because bad things happen, we die. We need to be perfect for God to take us to heaven when we die. However, we do bad things. We are not perfect. So God sent his Son, Jesus, down to the world. He lived a perfect life, and yet he died. Because Jesus died, all the sins we have committed are placed on him. Now God sees us as perfect, even though we did not do anything to deserve it. This is grace.



Christ in India 
A Lutheran Mission


We believe that the truth about our spiritual lives is found in one source: the Bible. The Bible is the Word of God, written through prophets thousands of years ago, telling the story of God and Jesus. The Bible tells us how the world was formed, why bad things happen, who God is, what things are wrong in God's eyes, and how God helped his people. This is Scripture.

This grace is received if one believes in Jesus Christ as his Savior. All around the world, people are receiving God's grace through faith. Here in India, there are over 24 million Christians. We are directly associated with 47 churches in India. To find one of these churches near you, click the "Learn More" button.
