Objectives for all that is included in Mark V Publications

The purpose of this web site, these publishing efforts, the theological papers and sermons included, is to produce unashamedly a public and worldwide witness to the theology and practice of historical Lutheranism, since Lutheranism is the true visible church on earth whose doctrine and stated practice do not vary in the least from the Lord's gracious desires for his church on earth as he has taught us in the only trusted source for knowledge of what he desires for our doctrine and life, that is the Holy Word of God.
