In The Way Ministry, we recognize and show our appreciation for the Protestant Reformation and the increased access to the Bible we have as a result. We celebrate our freedom to read and study God’s Word for ourselves and to share it with others. In honor of the five-hundredth anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of his Ninety-five Theses on the famous Castle Church doors, enjoy these photographs of Wittenberg, Germany.

Remembering Martin Luther

  2. 2. © 2017 by The Way International™. All rights reserved. In The Way Ministry, we recognize and show our appreciation for the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century, a time when the common people had little access to the written Word. The noble and courageous efforts of the reformers spurred advances in both access to God’s Word and understanding what it means. Wherever these reformers took a stand and made known the truth, the light of God began to shine and dispel the darkness.
