Home > About > LCMS Logo



The logo cross of the Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod is comprised of three crosses in one. It declares that “we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity.”

The top and left arms of the crosses reach upward toward God in prayer, open to receive God’s grace. The bottom and right arms of the crosses reach downward, open to embrace the world with God’s love.

The twelve individual sections of the LCMS logo cross remind us of the twelve tribes of Israel from the Old Testament, as well as the twelve apostles from the New Testament. The four arms of the cross appear to be in motion as we proclaim to the world what God’s love through Jesus Christ means to us, spreading the Gospel to the four corners of the world.

The LCMS logo cross was introduced in 1984.

"When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross." - Colossians 2:13-15
