What is a Lutheran?
In short, the Lutheran church traces its roots to the work of Martin Luther and other German Christians in 16th century Germany, but is now a worldwide branch of the Christian family tree. We claim God’s infinite and gracious love, given freely through Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, as the central message of the Christian faith. St. Mark belongs to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. For more about the distinctive facets of Lutheran Christianity, click here.
