Lutheran Basics

Lutheran Basics is the entry-level educational opportunity typically used as the entry point for those interested in joining the membership of a Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod congregation or simply to know what they believe, teach and confess. It is also used as a refresher for existing members on the basic doctrines of the Christian faith.
