The Lutheran Church, the world’s oldest and largest protestant church, is one of the world’s major churches. It dates back to the Reformation and the teachings of Martin Luther. Luther insisted that the Bible is the authority that decides what the church should teach and do. The word ‘Lutheran’ was given to the people who believed that Luther was correct in his interpretation of the Bible. There are over 75 million Lutherans worldwide.
