Who are Lutherans?
Lutherans are part of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church established by Jesus Christ. They trace their history back to the time of the Apostles. They adhere to the truths revealed in the New Testament and first summarized in the Apostles’ Creed.
While Lutherans take their name from Martin Luther, the 16th century reformer, their faith centers in Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Savior of the world. Lutherans acknowledge the Holy Scriptures as the norm for the faith and life of the church…the “sole authority for faith and life.”
Lutherans were the first Protestants, people who “protested” against the errors and corruption in the established church of their day. The name “Lutheran” was first applied to them in a derogatory way, but was soon proudly accepted by the followers of the great reformer.
