About Lutherans...
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Lutherans are a Christian denomination, and part of the world-wide Christian Church that is made up of those who have been baptized and thus have received Christ as the Son of God and Savior of the world.

Lutherans carry the name of Martin Luther, father of Protestantism. Lutherans today still hold the basic principles of theology and practice espoused by Luther, such as Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura: We are saved by the grace of God alone -- not by anything we do; Our salvation is through faith alone -- we only need to believe 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.
