Lutherans accept the teachings of Martin Luther, a German
theologian who realized that there were significant differences
between what he read in the Bible and the practices of the
Roman Catholic church at that time. On October 31, 1517, he
posted a challenge on the door of Wittenberg University, titled
"95 Theses," hoping the church would reform its
practice and preaching to be more consistent with the Bible.
Lutherans believe in one Triune God - God the Father, the
Creator; Jesus Christ, the Savior; and the Holy Spirit (God's
presence in the church today), the Redeemer.
Lutherans believe in the priesthood of all believers. We all
share in ministry and have the responsibility to teach and
pray for one another, and to live godly lives among our families,
in our jobs, and in our communities.
The Lutheran Church believes in grace alone, faith alone,
and Word alone. We are saved by the grace of God alone --
not by anything we do. Our salvation is through faith alone
-- a confident trust in God, who in Christ promises us forgiveness,
life and salvation. The Bible is the inspired Word of God
- the norm for our faith and life.
