His Truth Endures to all Generations. The Evangelical Lutheran Synod is celebrating its 75th anniversary in June of 1993. It was organized in 1918 at Lime Creek Lutheran Church near Lake Mills, Iowa. This book is presented as a history of the synod in commemoration of the anniversary. In this book the authors give all praise and thanks to God for His wondrous grace and mercy which he poured out so abundantly upon our forefathers and upon this generation. The mission of the synod has ever been to proclaim "Jesus Christ and Him crucified" for the salvation of souls, and to preserve the teachings of God's Word in their truth and purity. It is our prayer that the readers of this book will be inspired to hold fast to the pure Word of God and will pass this great heritage on to future generations.
