Science of the Father Dr. Martin Luther and other Lutheran reformers were included in the symbolic books gathered in the Book of consent of the year 1580, which are faithful lectures of Scripture, the only source of faith and Christian doctrine in the Lutheran spirit.
The four principles of luterism:
They became the prophetic of all Protestantism:
- Sola Scriptura – Only Scripture
- Solus Christus – Only Christ

The Lutheran "Theology of the Cross" puts the Cross of Jesus Christ, like the Apostle Paul, at the heart of the church's doctrine and life. We proclaimed Christ crucified. 1 Cor 1, 2

Faith in Jesus Christ gives salvation. Without faith, you cannot please God. HBR 13.6 Faith is an absolute trust of God. Good deeds are not merit, but the fruits of a living faith. The Christian does well not to be saved, but because he is saved.
The Word of God and the Holy sacraments:
The Word of God and the Holy Sacraments are channels of divine grace and the means of salvation. Through the word and the sacraments we are given the grace of God. We acknowledge the two sacraments: the Holy Baptism and the altar-the Eucharist, the Lord's Supper.

The Lutherans, based on the doctrine of the omnipresence of Jesus Christ, believe that in the supper of the Holy "W", "Z", "under" The figures of bread and wine are truly, real, the present flesh and the Blood of Jesus Christ (the Science of Consubstantionation). Luteranism rejects the study of transubstantiation (Transsubstance).
