Confirmation is a public practice 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. Confirmation provides an opportunity for the individual Christian, relying on God’s promise given in Holy Baptism, to make a personal public profession of the faith and a lifelong pledge of faithfulness to Christ. Confirmation teaches Baptized Christians who want to be Lutheran, Martin Luther’s doctrine on the Ten Commandments, the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, Holy Baptism, The Office of the Keys and Confession, and the Eucharist. Students often begin taking confirmation classes at about age twelve and are usually confirmed at age 14. At the conclusion of this confirmation instruction, young people traditionally make a public profession of their faith in a public ceremony known to Lutherans as the "Affirmation of Baptism."
