The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT) is the federation of Lutheran Churches in the African nation of Tanzania. In 1938, seven Lutheran churches founded a federation known as the Federation of Lutheran Churches in Tanganyika. On June 19, 1963, Churches merged to become a single Church known as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania.[1]
