What We Believe: Examining Our Faith

( watch all the videos in this YouTube Playlist )

Our faith as Lutherans can be summarized in the belief that we are saved from our sins by God's grace alone (Sola Gratia), through faith alone (Sola Fide), on the account of Scripture alone (Sola Scriptura). A great summary of the Lutheran faith can be found in Luther's Small Catechism. The videos below go over the teachings in the catechism.

Please follow along this series. Both new believers and long time believers will benefit. It is always good to stay in the word, examine our faith, and grow in our faith. If you have any questions please comment on the videos and Pastor Jeong will respond to you as we take this journey together.

The Small Catechism is available online for free, or you can order a copy from Concordia Publishing House that goes into more depth and study of the catechism.
