Welcome to the website of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church of The Gambia (ELCTG)

We the members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of The Gambia, redeemed by grace through faith and empowered by the Holy Spirit, seek to proclaim the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word, deed and loving service to all people in the world around us.


The mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of The Gambia is to serve as instruments of the Holy Spirit in response to the commission of its Lord and in accordance with various gifts and talents of its members, especially to proclaim the truth of the Gospel of Jesus through Word and Sacraments so as to gather in love and fellowship all who respond in faith and deed.

Transformed by the power of God’s love, we seek to help equip men and women in the Gambia for work in the world as persons trying to love God by serving each other’s neighbour.


The Evangelical Lutheran Church of The Gambia (ELCTG) was founded in 1999 by Samuel Thomas and a group of indigenous lay Christians. These were persons who had been in contact with Lutheranism while away from the country and wished to establish a Lutheran presence in The Gambia. The church was officially recognized by the government in the same year.

Geographically, the church is divided along the five administrative Divisions of the Gambia (Banjul) and three Regions: North Bank, Kombo Saint Mary’s, North Bank, Lower River Division, Central River Division and upper River Division. Lack of ordained ministers and Evangelists to lead the church has been a problem. Yet with the current membership about 2,000, the church has maintained a dynamic presence, encouraging educational programs especially in the area of Early Child Education.
