A summary and references on what Gloria Christ believes and teaches in accordance with Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions. La Iglesia Luterana le da la bienvenida

Achtung!  No watered-down Lutheranism here!

Jude 1:3

We are a confessional Lutheran congregation. This means that we hold to the Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church both in terms of doctrine and practice. We are catholic but not Roman Catholic. We are evangelical but not a part of the modern Evangelical movement. We hold that Jesus Christ is the object of our Faith and that justification by grace (Christ's forgiving our sins freely for the sake of His passion, death and resurrection) is the chief article of the Faith. We trust that our Lord comes to us to forgive our sins and give us Himself through the Word of God, preaching, baptism, absolution (forgiveness) and the Lord's Supper.

We encourage you to study Luther's Small Catechism as a basic statement of how Lutherans understand and teach the basic topics of Holy Scripture.
