Outline map of South Sudan

South Sudan is the World’s newest nation. The country gained its independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011 after a tragic and bloody war that claimed more than 2.5 million lives. South Sudan is a land of extensive grassland, swamps and tropical rain forest. With new hope of justice, liberty and prosperity, South Sudan embarks on a daunting task of rebuilding the nation. The church is among the most demanded infrastructure in the county. Many congregations still worship under the trees, and in the tents/huts. The LCSS is privileged to bring evangelical witness to South Sudan. Our goal is bring sinners to repentance and new life in God through Jesus Christ.

  • Over one million flocked Stadium and Streets of the Capital City, Juba.
  • Dr. John Garang’s statue, the icon of South Sudan’s freedom, was covered with the new country’s flag.
  • Sweet tears of joy, chanting “Freedom Weyee…, SPLM Weyee…” and dancing overwhelmed the nation.
  • Private and public memorial services in remembrance of more than 2.5 million lives, sacrificed for this freedom, was conducted everywhere in the city.

South Sudan is a new nation with no infrastructure. The country has only 100 miles paved road, 130 medical doctors with basic medical services and school curriculum remained at formative stage. The Lutheran Church of South Sudan is privileged to bring evangelical witness to the World newest nation at his historical stage of the country.

Grounded in the scripture and inspired by God’s Word, the LCSS embarks on making “Disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I (the LORD) have commanded” (Mathew 28:19-20). The LCSS engages on carrying out this great commission through vibrant evangelism; significant church planting and new church buildings; and preparing, equipping leaders and building and strengthening stewardship.
