The purpose of Intermountain West District is to support our common mission to bear witness to the good news that sinners are put right with God through repentance and faith alone in Jesus Christ. We take it upon ourselves to resist any corruption of this Gospel and support fellow congregations who seek to do likewise. This means that we will live in such a way as to serve the Kingdom of God by faithfulness to God’s Word as law and gospel, center our witness on the cross of Christ and give ourselves to God without reservation as servants and workers.

As with our national association, Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ, we are an association of congregations who are free in Christ, accountable to one another and rooted in the scriptures and the Lutheran confessions.
