Martin Luther


HI THERE AND WELCOME TO THIS PAGE. 

Martin Luther is one of the most significant historical figures of all time. He was a crucial figure in what is known as the Reformation - a period of time in the 16th Century when many people returned to the authority of the Bible (sola scriptura) and rested on the finished work of Christ (solus Christus); by faith in Him alone (not their so called 'good works').
