Confirmation is a public rite of the church preceded by a period of instruction designed to help baptized Christians identify with the life and mission of the Christian community.

From Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation, question #306


1.) Confirmation is a re-affirmation of one’s baptism. It is an opportunity to learn more deeply on what it means to be a baptized child of God.

2.) Confirmation provides further instruction in the sacramental life, increasing the catechumen’s understanding of Christ’s gifts.


The purpose of confirmation is to prepare the catechumen for a commitment to a life of Christian discipleship.


Our goal is to prepare young people to make confident, public confession of their faith. We will do everything within our power – together – to help them understand the gift of Christ’s forgiveness and how that is expressed in worship and life. Our practice is pretty simple: teach kids the Catechism and help them begin to live it out.
