The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and subscribes unconditionally to all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God. We accept the Confessions because they are drawn from the Word of God and on that account regard their doctrinal content as a true and binding exposition of Holy Scripture and as authoritative for all pastors, congregations and other rostered church workers of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
The Lutheran Confessions (The Book of Concord) include:
  • The Three Ecumenical Creeds
  • The Augsburg Confession
  • The Defense of the Augsburg Confession
  • The Large Catechism
  • The Small Catechism
  • The Smalcald Articles
  • Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope
  • The Epitome of the Formula of Concord
  • The Solid Declaration of the Formula of Concord
