Monday, July 24th through Thursday, July 27th, from 1:00 pm until 2:00 pm, Pastor Palach is offering a class examining the conflict between our culture and God’s Word. As our secular culture continues to make big inroads into the lives of many of today’s Christians, especially our youth and young adults, it is important to take the time to examine this disturbing trend. The study will be held at Faith Lutheran.
Lutheran theology survived the last five hundred years. But will it survive the next?
Since the time Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Lutheran theology has survived centuries of political, religious, and societal pressures that challenged its foundational teachings.
But the question remains: Do Lutherans today understand their theological heritage well enough to maintain and defend their unique beliefs when outside pressures dismiss them as irrelevant to modern-day Christianity?
Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity sets forth more than twenty important practices, doctrines, and beliefs that distinguish Lutheranism from all other denominations. Topics include:
- Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura, and Solus Christus
- The Dichotomy of Law and Gospel
- Christ’s Presence in the Lord’s Supper
Luther’s Unique Insight on the Theology of the Cross Engaging and insightful for both layperson and pastor, Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity will deepen your understanding of Lutheran theology and its rich historical traditions so you can confidently answer the question, “What do Lutherans believe?”

*Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity can be found in the new arrival section of the library.
