The Most Reverend Father Vince renamed the IOLC to International Orthodox Lutheran Church. He was not agree with the name “Independent” because Christians always depend of the Gospel as minimum. Since IOLC joined Synod of the ECAC, We became more dependent of more people, and it’s the best way – not to separate but connect.
“International” is the best shows of our Church – we are around the World, and all together!
In the short name of our Church still will be no changes – we are IOLC!
