"...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.

    Can you repent and believe in Christ by your own power?

    Can you repent and believe in Christ by your own power? - This is one of the many great questions asked by Dana Dirksen on her new children's CD - Questions With Answers: Vol. 3: Christ and His Work (CD). The music from Songs for Saplings is designed to help you teach your children about God. The Songs for Saplings: Questions with Answers Volumes 1-3 are designed for children age 3-5, 5-6, and 6-7 respectively. It is Dana's prayer that these CDs will continue to "find their way into night table CD players and minivans around the world" so that children can continue to hear these great truths from scripture. That they can learn about their God, how he cares for them, and that they can learn to love him more.

    What parents are saying about Songs for Saplings:
    "My children love your music! They have learned so many Bible verses and Bible concepts through listening to your music, and can't stop singing and dancing to it! Our family has been so blessed by your gift of spreading God's word through music. Thank you!"

    "Dana's music has really impacted our WHOLE family. Her music and especially the lyrics are far superior than your typical "kids' praise/worship music" with substantial Scriptural backing. It has become a witnessing tool for our children when we pick up kids for school, lessons or basketball."
    --B. Bunch
