Bible Based

We believe that the Bible is fully sufficient, clearly teaching people all they need to know to get to heaven. It makes them “wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15), and it equips them for “every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17).

  • When Martin Luther made his courageous stand on God’s word at the Diet of Worms on April 18, 1521, he spoke in German and in Latin. Eyewitness accounts and transcripts of the proceedings vary. Some accounts include “Here I stand…” Others do not. All the accounts are in agreement with the substance of Luther’s words—that he upheld the authority of Scripture and that his conscience was captive to Scripture. Personally, as I think of that dramatic scene, I am happy to include that phrase in Luther’s speech. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther, accompanied by Johann Schneider, nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. He also sent a copy of the Theses to Archbishop Albert of Mainz. Twentieth-century historians questioned whether Luther actually posted the Theses. There is a good treatment of this topic in a 2018 companion volume to Luther’s Works: “Sixteenth-Century Biographies of Martin Luther.”
