What Lutherans Believe
Through his ministry,
death and resurrection, Christ has saved us from "sin, death, and
the power of the devil." God's gift of faith in Christ's saving
power makes that saving power effective for us. In joy and freedom,
we respond to God's grace with praise and thankful service.
