Family tree of laestadianism in America. Includes defunct groups.

The Laestadian Lutheran Church (LLC) is a religious Christian movement, its teachings based on the Minnesota, Washington, Arizona, Michigan in the United States and in Saskatchewan, Canada; the congregations are served by 68 ministers, nearly all of them lay preachers.

In Northern Europe, the association's sister organizations are the Estonian Lutheran Association of Peace ().

The main teaching among them is of Christian faith, doctrine, and life. The norms in the congregation such as refraining from birth-control, make-up, and dancing, are some of the things members do not feel are right to do as a child of God.

The Laestadian Lutheran Church takes its name from Cokato, Minnesota, in 1872 and Calumet, Michigan, in 1873. The Laestadian movement in North America has suffered a number of schisms since 1890. The subjects of disagreement have mainly been the understanding of justification, God's congregation, and the sacraments. The last division occurred in 1973 and resulted in the establishment of the Laestadian Lutheran Church.
