  Book of Concord Online: Lutheran Confessions
Therefore, it is our intent to give witness before God and all Christendom, among those who are alive today and those who will come after us, that the explanation here set forth regarding all the controversial articles of faith which we have addressed and explained—and no other explanation—is our teaching, faith, and confession. In it we shall appear before the judgment throne of Jesus Christ, by God's grace, with fearless hearts and thus give account of our faith, and we will neither secretly nor publicly speak or write anything contrary to it. Instead, on the strength of God's grace we intend to abide by this confession (FC SD, XII, 40).

The six week Interactive Faith online Bible study will begin Wed., Oct. 4, 2017. Prof. Joel Otto from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary will lead a study entitled “Luther’s lasting impact.” The studies take place twice each Wednesday at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. (central) through Nov. 8. Prof. Otto writes, “Luther’s Reformation led to profound developments that impacted the church and how people learn, confess, and live their faith. As Lutherans living in the 21st century, what Luther brought about is still part of who we are as Christians and as a church. This study will examine those developments that continue to have a lasting impact.”
