In We the Church: The Priesthood of All Believers, the focus is on the critical role of the laity in the origin and development of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). From immigrant communities of German Christians to a mainline denomination of more than 6,000 congregations, We the Church examines the role of LCMS laity both inside and outside of the church and challenges today's church members to embrace their rich heritage as disciples by sharing the message of hope they have in Christ Jesus.

Featuring expert commentary, instructive graphics, and detailing the Christ-centered mission of the LCMS, We the Church highlights key events and people that have shaped the history of this church body during its various ups and downs through the years. It notes the importance of the full empowerment of all laity and clergy and how early LCMS members responded to the spiritual guidance of men like C.F.W. Walther, Friedrich Wyneken, and others to share the Gospel with everyone—not just those of a similar cultural background or language.

Also included with this release is a discussion guide with questions to consider based on the video and dozens of Internet links to explore the topic further—from the Saxon migration to the United States to numerous auxiliary organizations that have formed over the years, including the Walther League, the Lutheran Women's Missionary League, and the International Lutheran Laymen's League/Lutheran Hour Ministries. An additional historical perspective is included which delves even deeper into the rich heritage of the LCMS and examines the ebbs and flows of the denomination through the years.
