We look forward to teaching your children about the word of God this Sunday. Parents may join us for an adult Bible study at the same time. Questions about church doctrine are welcome here.
The Augsburg Confession (1530 A.D.)
Written by Luther’s colleague Philip Melanchthon, this statement of faith is often viewed as the chief Lutheran confession. It was presented by the followers of Luther to Emperor Charles V at the imperial diet (assembly) meeting in Augsburg, Germany. It was intended to be a summary of the chief articles of the Christian faith as understood and taught by Lutherans in contrast to the errors that were being taught by the Roman Catholic church.
See the explanation for the first choice. Early Lutherans wanted to reform the church.
