The Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Poland (ECACP) belongs to the family of Lutheran churches. The name of the Church refers to the Gospel (gr. euangélion) – the Good News about Jesus Christ – and the Reformation’s confession of faith read out in Augsburg to Emperor Charles V in 1530.
The ideas of the Reformation reached Poland only a few years after Martin Luther’s plea.
Today Lutherans make up 0.2% of the Polish society; still, the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession is the third largest Church in Poland.
