Why Go Lutheran?
|What is a Lutheran College?|
Wartburg is a College of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. You may be wondering what exactly a Lutheran is, and how does being a Lutheran College shape this community?
Lutherans are Christians who take their name from Martin Luther (1483-1546) a German Professor and Monk who sought to reform the Church by questioning its practices. One of Luther’s most important ideas is that God is most clearly revealed in unlikely places and in surprising ways, particularly in Jesus on the Cross. That idea shapes the Wartburg community in some important ways.
God is surprising…
1) We cannot assume that we have all the answers.
2)The Cross unites us.
3) We are free to pursue truth and ask questions.
4) We are called to give our lives in service to others by leading with our voices and actions.
Because Wartburg is a Lutheran College everyone is a valued member of our community. We hope you will be willing to bring your gifts, questions, and ideas into your experience at Wartburg.
