By Dr. Timothy Ysteboe
What do we believe? That is a question we have all asked at one time or another. It’s important for us to know what we believe and why we believe it. Our theology is not just a feeling or an experience and our Statement of Faith is more than just rules to follow or guidelines to live by. For us in the Church of the Lutheran Brethren, our Statement of Faith summarizes the biblical foundation of our living, teaching and witnessing. This book, “We Believe,” is a wonderful commentary on our Statement of Faith. It presents the Statement of Faith in eleven chapters, and includes questions for group discussion. It is ideal for elder training, small group Bible study and personal education. This book was born in discussion with young adults and later honed for congregational leaders and elders.
