    Anglicans and/or Episcopalians go to lengths to identify themselves as catholics. What is the Lutheran position on the labelling of their members as catholics? Is the church a reformed version of the ancient catholic (or Catholic) church or is it in partial opposition to Catholic Church positions? Do Lutherans regard themselves as Protestants?

    1. Rev. John Huber says:

      There is one Church in the world as far as I know and we confess this in our Ceeds:
      “We believe in one holy, Catholic and ApostolicChurch….”
      I do not feel the need to identify our Church with the Roman Catholic church which is with us in the One Church we believe in.
