Do Lutherans Believe in Life After Death? PDF Print E-mail

While there is much we do not and cannot know about life beyond the grave, Lutherans do believe that life with God persists even after death.  Judgment is both a present and future reality, and history moves steadily towards God's ultimate fulfillment.

This of course is a great mystery, and no description of what life may be like in any dimension beyond history is possible.  Anxiety for the future is not a mark of faith.   Christians should go about their daily tasks, trusting in God's grace and living a life of service in his name.
