Means of Grace

The Means of Grace are God's instruments by which all spiritual blessings are bestowed upon sinners.

Lutheran churches teach that the means of grace are the ways that the Holy Spirit creates faith in the hearts of Christians, forgives their sins, and gives eternal salvation.

These means of grace are the Word of the Gospel, in every form in which it is brought to man, and the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and of the Lord's Supper.
