In chapter II, I will give an historical survey of the Finnish emigration to the United States, and the resultant formation and growth of both the Suomi Synod and the Apostolic Lutherans or Laestadians, as a prelude to the formation of the National Evangelical Lutheran Church. In chapter III, I will trace the history of the National Evangelical Lutheran Church to 1956. In chapter IV, I will cover the actual merger process to completion in January of 1964.
