Lutheran churches have grown from the teachings of Martin Luther, whose efforts were to reform the practices and theology of the Roman Catholic church. Lutherans confess the faith of the apostolic Christian Church as it is taught in the three EcumenicalCreeds, Nicene, Apostles’, and Athanasian. Namely, that there is only one true God, and yet in this one God there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The key doctrine, or material principle, of the Lutheran church is the doctrine of justification. Lutherans believe that humans are saved from their sins by God's grace alone, through faith alone.
