Sermon Series – “Being Lutheran”

Sermon Series – Being Lutheran
Summer 2014
Pastor Rev. John C. Stennfeld

What does it mean to be a ‘Lutheran’ Christian?  Does it pertain to our ethnic heritage, our liturgical traditions, or our hymnody?  No, though many Lutherans pride themselves on these things.  Lutheran Christians can be found in Africa, Asia, and South America each praising God in their own languages, with their own cultural traditions, and their own genres of music.  Thus what marks us and binds us as Lutheran Christians is not our ethnic or liturgical heritage and traditions but rather our doctrine and our theology.  We are marked and united by what we believe, teach, and confess concerning God, His word, and His will for our lives.  This sermon series, “Being Lutheran”, is designed to highlight those elements that form the basis of Lutheran theology.  While aspects of these teachings can be found in other non-Lutheran Churches, no truly Lutheran Church can be found without these teachings.  Therefore the goal of this series is to teach what we as Lutherans believe, and why we believe it, and to fill the hearer with the absolute assurance of God’s loving and saving grace in Christ Jesus our Lord.
