Lutheran Confessional Church - Finland
The Lutheran Confessional Church in Finland was founded July 12, 2002. Activity first began in 1979 when some Finnish Christians became members of the LBK in Sweden. The first congregation in Finland, Evankelis Luterilainen Tunnustuskirkko, was founded April 10, 1988. This congregation and Haukiputaan luterilainen vapaaseurakunta, Lutheran free congregation in Haukipudas established in 1997, joined in fellowship during 1999. These two are now registered as the Lutheran Confessional Church in Finland.
One congregation is located in the capital, Helsinki, in southern Finland. The other is in Haukipudas, close to the city of Oulu in northern Finland. One preaching station is located in Vaasa, in western Finland.
