The North Western Diocese (NWD) is one of the other 23 dioceses which form the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT).  Although it is part of and abides by the constitution of the nationwide ELCT, the diocese is an autonomous institution, with its own constitution for managing its internal affairs.
