These files are from the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod's popular "What About" series which explains many of the important teachings of New Hope Lutheran Church.
Most of the core teachings of the Lutheran Church are summed up in the six chief parts of Luther's Small Catechism. You can read Luther's Small Catechism in the file below:
A "Creed" is a statement of belief. We all use creeds in ways that we may not even realize. The simple statement, "Jesus loves me" is a creed. The Apostle's Creed is probably the oldest public confession of the Church. You can read about it in Luther's Small Catechism above. Another important creed of the church is the Nicene Creed which is a fuller confession of what we believe about our Triune God. The following file breaks the creed down into individual statements and gives Bible references for why the church has historically believed these things about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
