1.1        THE NAME
The name of the Church is the "Evangelical Lutheran Church in Southern Africa (ELCSA)", hereinafter referred to as the Church.

1.2        CHARACTER
ELCSA is an Episcopal Church. The Church shall therefore have an office of Bishop entrusted with authority and oversight concerning the Teachings and Spiritual matters.


2.1        The foundation upon which the Church stands is Jesus Christ, the Word of God
as proclaimed in the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments, which we
believe to be correctly explained by the three ecumenical symbols, namely the
Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed and the writings of
the Lutheran Reformation, especially the Catechisms of Dr Martin Luther and
the Unaltered Augsburg Confession.

2.2        In addition to the above the Church may be called upon to make doctrinal statements in order to witness to and to defend Biblical truth and Christian Faith against anti-Christian forces in her environment and heresies within the Church.
