"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Is the Reformation Over?

    In this video, Dr. Michael Reeves explains why the Reformation is not over.

    Transcript:

    The Reformation is not over and cannot be over. The first reason it’s not over is because the Roman Catholic Church has not been reformed. Rome, by her own catechism and statements, still repudiates justification by faith alone, and therefore the matter of the Reformation has not been resolved.

    Furthermore, those churches that would not call themselves Roman Catholic needed to be ongoingly reformed because reformation is not something that can be settled. Reformation is about the church purifying herself by the Word of God continually. There is never some acceptably pure level.

    So, reformation is an ongoing thing. And that means that reformation cannot be over until Christ returns, because reformation is about chasing that purity that Christ wants for His church. And we have not reached that and we will not reach that until He returns.

    Farewell to Mundane Sundays!

    Hebrews 10:23-25; 12:18-24

    Christian, when you come to the corporate gathering on the Lord's Day, whether 10 others show up with you, 100 or even a crowd of 10,000, you are actually part of something so massive, so momentous, you would hardly believe it. You have come to an event so big it makes the Superbowl look a small family picnic by comparison. Embracing what Scripture reveals about our corporate gathering together allows us to say ‘farewell' to boredom forever. Your Sundays will never be the same!

    The Key To Transformation

    Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

    Do You Believe This?

    Text: John 11:17 - 37

    Where do you go for answers? What is your "go to" source for truth? The choice before us is either the Lord Jesus Christ on His own terms or some form of syncretism.
