"...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.

    Preaching (6)

    Preach with Unction

    "And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness." The anointing of the Spirit is necessary for true boldness in preaching. Apart from the Spirit's empowerment, a preacher might muster some fervor, but he will lack authority, and might not even possess the courage to maintain God's truth before sinners. The right proclamation of the Word requires holy unction, which comes by the grace of God through prayer.
