"For as the rain and the snow come down from
heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And
making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and
bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My
mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I
desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it."
NAB Isaiah 55:10-11

Jesus said, "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:31-32) 

It is in gratitude to those men who opened the pages of Scripture to me so that I might understand the full truth of the Gospel  and its implications that I present this summary of the confession of the Christian faith.  This confession is an introduction to the Christian faith as we find confessed in the Lutheran Church Ė Missouri Synod.  I unhesitatingly offer that this confession is in complete harmony with His Word, which alone is able to make us wise unto salvation.  While many contributed to the growth and formation of my faith through the sharing of Godís Word, these men stand out in my mind as those who had the most impact upon me and hence I give them my thanks:  Rev. Jack McWhirter, who introduced me to this faith; Professors Louis Brighton and Charles Arand, who probably without knowing it turned me from a path into liberal apostate Christianity back to the truth of Scripture; Rev. David Dissen and Rev. Steven MacDougall, who taught me the value of faithful practice in the office of the ministry.  May God always bless His church with those eager and equipped to proclaim the truth of His Word.

Rev. David D. Reedy, M.Div.
