What Lutherans Believe
As Christians, we are called to 'go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything [Jesus] has commanded' (Matthew 28:19,20a NIV)
We are Christians who believe that Jesus is our Saviour who loves, accepts and forgives us.
As Lutherans, we believe that:
- The Bible is the inspired word of God and is the only source for all matters of faith, teaching and life.
- God's gift of salvation is found through faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died for our sins on the cross and rose to life.
- The gospel is 'good news' that frees us and allows us to live as forgiven people.
- We need both gospel and law in our lives.
