"...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.

    Our God and Savior, Jesus Christ

    "...looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds." Titus 2:13,14

    Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:" 2 Peter 1:1

    According to 1 Peter 3:15, we have a mandate from God to provide a reasoned defense of the faith to anyone who asks us for it. The Deity of Christ is certainly a doctrine at the heart of the Christian faith. The enemies of the Gospel are all around us and some of them, like Jehovah's Witnesses, attempt to appeal to the original language of the New Testament to dismiss the idea that Christ is God. At this link here you will see (on a youtube video) New Testament scholar, Dr. James White provide a brief response to a caller who was challenged by a Jehovah's Witness concerning the Granville Sharp Rule in Greek and its application in Titus 2:13. Although brief (just over 7 minutes in length), it is an excellent response and well worth seeing.
