About Lutheran Churches

All Local Luther Churches in the world trace their history and traditions to one Martin Luther, the German Catholic Priest who took issue with many of the church's views and theological positions. That much is true. But in the centuries since Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door in Wittenberg, the churches which trace their roots to that event have diverged into a variety of traditions and personalities. Today, if you were to visit the local Lutheran Churches in your community, you might be surprised to find great diversity in the way they worship, the positions they take on controversial issues, and they commitments they make to serve their communities. Lets go inside these local Lutheran Churches and see how these differences will affect your experience should you choose to visit. Most churches, whether they are local Lutheran Churches or churches from other denominations and traditions, are known by their style of worship. The demographics of the church are the key ingredient in deciding what style of worship the church embraces. Many churches are populated by older generations, and so their style of worship will be strictly traditional. In these local Lutheran Churches you are likely to find an organ, or certainly a piano, on which the old hymns of the faith are being played. You are likely to also hear a choir performing. The concern in many of these traditional churches is that they are not attracting younger generations. Therefore, not without controversy, some of these local Lutheran Churches are beginning alternate worship services which incorporate newer styles of worship, including modern instruments and new worship songs and choruses. Newer local Lutheran Churches do not provide traditional worship at all. All their worship is contemporary, played on modern instruments.

More on Lutheran Churches

While musical style can be a controversial issue in some local Lutheran Churches, it is social issues that create the greatest conflict within them. In fact, ancient historical Lutheran denominations have split over many of these issues. When deciding between local Lutheran Churches, you will want to speak with the church's leadership to find out their views on these issues, so that you are able to find a congregation that you are comfortable with. A less controversial issue, but an important one nonetheless, is the stance the local Lutheran Churches take on their responsibility to their local community. In some cases, the churchs view is that people need to begin to attend the church before they benefit from the church's benevolence ministries. Some churches do not want to be taken advantage of, and so want to build a relationship with a person or family before giving to their needs. Other local Lutheran Churches seek to meet the needs of the larger community. A popular and effective means of doing this today is through ministries that build new housing or repair existing housing for needy families. Whatever values you seek in local Lutheran Churches, you are likely to find a church in your community that will be a perfect fit!
