The life of faith is first and foremost about being a relationship with God. Like all good relationships, this one grows and changes over the course of a lifetime. That’s why faith formation doesn’t end at confirmation.
As Lutheran Christians, we believe that the Holy Scriptures contain the Word of God. When we read the Bible, we read of the story of God’s steadfast love and how that has manifested itself through time. We read stories of sinners and saints, of love and rebellion, and above all we read the story of Jesus Christ, the ultimate living embodiment of God’s love for humanity and the cosmos. We study these stories, because in them we see our own stories, and in studying them, we come to recognize the stories of God’s relationship with humanity as our own story.
