The Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod is founded in Chicago, Illinois by German immigrants.

There are German Lutheran communities spread throughout America's upper mid-west and over time many develop the desire to join forces for common causes.

Thus twelve pastors from fourteen German Lutheran congregations meet in Chicago to discuss how they can do it.

This new Lutheran group is very conservative on a wide range of issues, opposing for example humanism and religious syncretism. Much of the conservatism is retained over the years, for example promoting creationism and teaching that the papacy should be identified with the Antichrist.
