What's a Lutheran?

A Lutheran is a follower of Jesus Christ. We join the billions of Christians around the world of the last two millennia who confess Jesus Christ is Lord and believe the eyewitness testimony that he rose bodily from the dead. Before Jesus ascended into heaven, he commissioned his apostles to proclaim repentance and forgiveness of sins in his name. We join this long tradition of making disciples of Jesus Christ while looking for his imminent return to this earth when he will judge the living and the dead and establish his everlasting kingdom. As Lutheran Christians, we have a special affinity to Martin Luther, the 16th-century German reformer. His Small Catechism (first published in 1529), which simply explains the most important teachings of the Bible, forms the basis of instruction for both our adults and our children. We belong to The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), a collection of congregations established in 1847 by German immigrants to America. It is the second largest Lutheran church body in the United States with 2.3 million baptized members. More information on the LCMS can be found at lcms.org.
