Martin Luther started a reform movement in the Christian church. The key themes of that reform effort—justification by grace through faith, scripture alone, faith alone, grace alone, Christ alone, glory to God alone — continue to be central to how we live and teach the Christian faith at Luther House Chapel.
Lutherans believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all of creation — the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God’s Spirit is active in the world.

Although Christianity has been around for thousands of years, it is still new to many people all over the world. Lutheranism is also a new idea for many. Here you will find links to various documents and doctrine that may be helpful in your faith journey.
The Book of Concord contains documents which Christians from the fourth to the 16th century A.D. explained what they believed and taught on the basis of the Holy Scriptures. It includes, first, the three creeds which originated in the ancient church, the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. It contains, secondly, the Reformation writings known as the Augsburg Confession, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles, the Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope, Luther’s Small and Large Catechisms, and the Formula of Concord.
On 3rd August 1963, the Lutheran Church in Malaysia and Singapore was formally constituted with the Rev. Paul Alberti installed as the first President.
The seeds of this work, however, were planted much earlier from the contributions of many people from different lands and cultures.
As with Lutheran churches elsewhere, the Lutheran Church in Malaysia and Singapore (now simply the Lutheran Church in Malaysia or LCM) can trace its roots directly to the Protestant Reformation that took place in Europe in the 16th century.
It is the governing body for six Lutheran churches in Malaysia as well as various partnership ministries.
