Martin Luther was born on November 10, 1483 and played many crucial roles as a professor, monk, composer and priest. Luther did not love the fundamentals the Roman catholic churches were abiding by and wanted to bring change by identifying these flaws.

    The church is the group wherein God’s salvation from sin is found. It is the group that Jesus purchased with His own blood (Acts 20:28). Jesus is the head and director of this group, and He dictates what it may or may not do (Col. 1:18).
