Our Church in a nutshell

The Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church is officially not a state church. The vast majority of the population (72 % in December 2016), however, are members and share the Church´s heritage and tradition. Read more

What we believe:
Lutheranism is a denomination of Protestant Christianity whose roots are in the teachings of Martin Luther and the 16th century Reformation.
Jesus Christ's death on the cross and his resurrection are the foundation of faith and salvation. Faith alone is sufficient for a person to be acceptable to God. True faith is born through God's Word and the sacraments. There are two sacraments, baptism and holy communion. Although good works do not earn salvation, love of neighbour and helping others are daily manifestations of faith.

Grace: A person is saved entirely by God's grace, not by his own doing.
Faith: Faith alone is sufficient for a person to be acceptable to God. True faith is born through God's Word and the sacraments.
The Bible: All doctrinal issues and definitions are based on the Bible.
Christ: Jesus Christ, His ministry and teachings are the basis of faith and salvation.
