Bible Study & Catechesis

“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)

The Lord Jesus doesn’t leave us without help, or hope.  By means of His Holy Word, He sustains and preserves us a people for Himself, even by means of His Word connected in, with, and under the ordinary elements of water (Holy Baptism) and unleavened bread and wine (Lord’s Supper).

“Whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” (Mathew 10:32-33)

 

“Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by a period of instruction designed to help baptized Christians identify with the life and mission of the Christian community….Prior to admission to the Lord’s Supper, it is necessary to be instructed in the Christian faith (1 Cor. 11:28).  The rite of confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God’s promises given in Holy Baptism, to make a personal public confession of the faith and lifelong pledge of fidelity to Christ.” [Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1991), 245].

 

Catechumens are instructed in the

Six Chief Articles of Luther’s Small Catechism:

 

The Ten Commandments                           Holy Baptism

The Creed                                                       The Office of the Keys

The Lord’s Prayer                                          The Lord’s Supper

 

Following instruction and examination (concerning confession, faith, and doctrine), catechumens may be received into communicant membership by the Rite of Confirmation.

Currently, junior catechetical instruction is a minimum of two years.  Adult catechetical instruction is a minimum of 12-14 weeks.  The amount of time for instruction may vary, dependent on individual circumstances.  Please email/call for more information.

Members of sister LCMS congregations in good standing (i.e. not under church discipline) requesting transfer of membership to Apostles Lutheran Church must first speak with the pastor of Apostles and discuss catechetical instruction.

“The Holy Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
