The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Papua New Guinea (ELC-PNG) was first organized in 1956 as the ELCONG.  In the late 1960s, as the country began to look toward independence from Australia, the indigenous church also began to take over many of the responsibilities from the overseas mission controlled Lutheran Mission New Guinea.  In 1976, shortly after the independence of Papua New Guinea, the church became fully autonomous and its name was changed to the current ELC-PNG.
