500 Years Since the Beginning of the Reformation - 500 Years Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Reformation 500 Countdown







01 - Martin Luther - 02

five hundred years: 1517 – 2017

“Our churches teach that people cannot be justified before God by their own strength, merits, or works. People are freely justified for Christ’s sake, through faith, when they believe that they are received into favor and that their sins are forgiven for Christ’s sake. By His death, Christ made satisfaction for our sins. God counts this faith for righteousness in His sight.”

–  Article 4, The Augsburg Confession

cinq cents ans: 1517 – 2017
