What Lutherans Believe
Lutherans hold to the following basic principles of theology and practice written by Martin Luther:
- We are saved by the grace of God alone – not by anything we do.
- Through faith alone, we receive this salvation by believing in Christ and that our sins are forgiven for Christ’s sake who died to redeem us.
- The Bible is the only norm of doctrine and life – the only true standard by which teachings and doctrines are to be judged.
