The message about Jesus is good news!

That's the simple answer to the question, "What is a Lutheran?"
  While we have lots more to say, Jesus is the gift of God's love that makes the impossible possible.

Faith happens because God meets us in the Holy Spirit, which makes experiences with God possible.  Where does God meet us? Through the Bible, Baptism and Communion.  These aren't the only places, but they're the reliable and promised places we know God will always be to show us grace.
