Sunday, June 25th 2017 marked the 500th Celebration
of the Presentation of the Augsburg Confession.  

It's sometimes referred to as the "Birthday of the Lutheran Church."  
But it's more than that.   By God's grace we are still counting the years since that day when God enabled believers like Luther and the princes and laypeople of Germany to embrace the gospel
and take their stand on the truth that we are saved by faith alone, grace alone,
scripture alone, and Christ alone!!
