Rev. Micah Bauer, Associate Pastor of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Brookings, South Dakota, joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss Part III, Article X: Ordination and the Call in the Smalcald Articles in the Book of Concord.
The church is to gather together to preach the Gospel, use the sacraments, and promote the spreading of the pure Word of God. For this work, our Lord has graciously given to His Church the Office of Holy Ministry. Hence, there is a need for pastors! But how can you know that your pastor is rightly ordained for this work?
