Confirmation is a public rite of the Church, for which students have spent time in instruction, designed to help them identify with the life and mission of the Christian Church. The Rite of Confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God's promise given in Baptism, to make a personal public profession of the faith and a lifelong pledge of faithfulness to Christ.

Confirmation teaches baptized Christians who wish to become Lutheran Martin Luther's theology found in his “Small Catechism.”
