The SELC has related itself positively and negatively to other Lutheran churches in the United States. With some church bodies it has declared agreement and has affiliated with this group--the Evangelical Lutheran Synodical Conference of North America. With others, though there have been repeated attempts and invitations for union, the SELC has declined to affiliate. These positions, affiliations or non-affiliations are the points considered in this thesis. That is the scope of this thesis in content. In time the scope of this thesis includes the period from the organizing of the SELC in September of 1902 to the end of the year 1954.
