Welcome to the blog of the
Lutheran Church in Poitou!
We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church-Synod of France.
Biblical - We believe that the Bible is the very Word of God and the only source and norm of belief for the Church on earth.
Gospel-centered - We believe that the Bible's centre is the saving message of God's forgiveness through Christ. And it is only by the grace of the Holy Spirit, Who calls us through the good news of Jesus Christ, enlightens us with His gifts and sanctifies us, that we are able to believe.
Confessional - There are a series of documents of belief to which we subscribe. They can be found in the Lutheran "Book of Concord" of 1580. Luther's Small Catechism is a good summary of what we believe and teach.
All are welcome at our activities.
