Preach the Word - 2 - Through Literature - The Catechism

"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have know the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy3:14-17).
Luther's Small Catechism is a "little Bible", or "the Bible of the lay people". It has been used in our Bible Studies to prepare better our Christians; in home visits in preparation for Baptism; and as a gift to people interested to know better the Lutheran Christian faith.
The Catechism we are using were donated by friends of the LCMS (in English) and by the Lutheran Heritage Foundation (in Swahili).
