The German speaking Evangelical Lutheran congregation in Lima was founded 1898 by German emigrants. There are contractual ties with the EKD (Evangelical Church in Germany). In majority the members of the Evangelic Lutheran Church in Lima are German, Peruvian, Austrian / Swiss Reformed, Lutheran and United denomination.

The Evangelic Lutheran Church has an active and family orientated community life offering special older person afternoons, literature circles, women breakfasts, concerts, bible classes, discussion groups and children activities. The church is also engaged in numerous social projects in Peru. The most important surely is the Casa Belen, a day care center for children in Lima's district Breña, that was founded by the Evangelic Lutheran Church in 1965.

In 2012 the home in San Isidro where the church resided nearly 60 years was sold. Until the new church and all facilities are finished (approx by mid 2014) the church office, the ministry and Sunday mass are in three different places.
