CELC Ninety-Five Theses For the 21st Century

King of Grace Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod, which in turn is a member of the worldwide fellowship of churches known as the Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference (CELC). CELC President Gaylin Schmeling writes:

Five hundred years ago on 31 October 1517, Martin Luther posted the Ninety-Five Theses in Wittenberg, Germany, pointing out the abuses he saw in the church of his time. The results of that action were no doubt unforeseen by him at the time, yet their effect has shaped the religious and cultural history of the world ever since. The date of this event has become known as the beginning of the Lutheran Reformation.

As part of the Reformation celebration, a special committee of the CELC with members from around the world produced Ninety-Five Theses For the 21st Century. These theses present all the basic Teachings of the Scripture as confessed in the Lutheran church. They are organized according to the outline of Luther’s catechisms, which to this day are treasured as teaching tools in the churches of the CELC.

The "Ninety-Five Theses For the 21st Century" can be downloaded from the CELC website.
