"...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.

    How Sweet the Sound...

    Perhaps no song captures the heart of reformed theology better than the classic hymn "Amazing Grace" by John Newton. Indeed "twas grace that taught my heart to fear..." is the heart cry of every child of God who recognizes that it was God's irresisitible grace alone that opened our hearts to see the beauty of Christ and His gospel, it is grace that has brought us safe thus far, and in what is called the doctrine of the perseverance (or preservation) of the saints, it is indeed God's grace that will lead us home.

    I was sent this link today and in playing it, found it to be deeply moving. Here is Amazing Grace sung by a very talented foursome IL DIVO, with the help of a wonderful Scottish bagpipe player. Have your sound turned up, click on the link here and enjoy! - JS
