2014 Confirmation


Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by a period of instruction designed to help baptized Christians identify with the life and mission of the Christian community. Prior to admission to the Lord’s Supper, it is necessary to be instructed in the Christian faith (1 Cor. 11:28). The rite of confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God’s promises given in Holy Baptism, to make a personal public confession of the faith and lifelong pledge of fidelity to Christ. Catechumens are instructed in the Six Chief Articles of Luther’s Small Catechism: The Ten Commandments, Holy Baptism, The Creed, The Office of the Keys,The Lord’s Prayer, and The Lord’s Supper. Following instruction and examination, catechumens are received into communicant membership by the Rite of Confirmation.
