What is a Lutheran?
People are looking for a friend. The Lutheran church has that friend -Jesus Christ. He is our friend because he came to be our Savior. The central message of the Bible is that sinners (and that includes us all) have a Savior. Jesus Christ is God's own Son, who lived a perfect life, died on the cross, and rose from the dead to bring us forgiveness, peace with God, and eternal life in place of guilt, fear, and damnation.
That's the heart of our faith. In our age of uncertainty and fear, only a faith like this offers hope and confidence in death as well as in life
Jesus said, "God so loved the world that, he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
