Congregational Study of the Confessio Augustana (Augsburg Confession)

October 24th, 2017

Did you know where Augustana Lutheran Church got its name? Augustana is named after the Confessio Augustana, commonly known as the Augsburg Confession. This document is a statement of faith made by the early reformers that is still very much applicable to how we talk about God today. This document is a foundation of the Christian faith, not just Lutheran. This text study will dive deep into how we can talk about our faith, our church, and our role as Christians using this great bit of literature.

The text study of the Augsburg Confession will begin Monday, November 6th. I will be leading the study at 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Mondays. 

We will look together at the document by the topics that it discusses. This will not just be lectures. It will involve real discussion from participants about faith. This will be a six week study. To get a full taste of the Augsburg Confession try and make all six weeks of the study. If you can only make a few that is fine because the lessons are not dependent of one another.

Here is a map of the 6 weeks:

Nov. 6th: History of the Augsburg Confession and a Look at the Preface

Nov. 13th: The Triune God

Nov. 20th: Faith, Good Works, and Justification

Nov. 27th: Sin and Free Will

Dec. 4th: Worship and Sacraments

Dec. 11th: Church, Church Authority, and Secular Authority
