As we gather on 31 October 2017 to rejoice the 500th year of Reformation, let us further understand how Martin Luther’s bold act of nailing his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, formally resulted in the Reformation by way of the Augsburg Confession.
Rev. Nick Singh explains why 25 June 1530, the day the Augsburg Confession was presented, may also be considered the birthday of the Lutheran Church.

One of the great events of the Reformation is the presentation of the Augsburg Confession to Emperor Charles V on 25 June 1530. It was indeed a great day of triumph for all who believed in the Biblical Gospel of the justification by grace through faith apart from the works of the Law. That day can be considered the birthday of the Lutheran Church.
