What do Lutherans Believe?
Lutherans still hold to the basic principles of theology and practice espoused by Martin Luther:, Grace Alone. Faith alone. Scripture Alone.
We are saved by the grace of God, not by anything we do. But we respond to God’s unfailing love with gratitude toward God and in service to our neighbors.
God comes to meet us in the person of Jesus Christ. Faith is given by God so that we might believe that Christ gave his life to erase our sins. That faith allows us to trust in that promise of God, and to be guided by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Scripture is God-given, and is the only true standard by which belief, teaching and doctrine can be judged; and should be applied with prayer and deep humility.
