Concordia Publishing House believes…
God’s Word guides everything you do as a child of God, so it directs what we, as a Christian publisher, do too. Every book, study, and leaflet we print points you to Jesus and how He impacts your life today—no matter your vocation, age, or life stage. We are the publishing arm of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and are therefore deeply committed to remaining faithful to the Holy Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. This commitment is reflected throughout all of our resources.
