"...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.

    Chapter Seven: Choose This Day

    Thus far in my message to you, I have tried to do two things: first, show you exactly what Christianity is, and second, show how it applies to you personally, no matter who you may be. Now, I intend to show you that this message, with its necessary personal application, cannot be ignored or shelved indefinitely: it demands a response, and the time for that response is now. I repeat the words of the prophet Elijah, when on Mount Carmel he put the truth of his God to the proof against the opposing religions of his day: “If the Lord [Christ] is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him”1. So today, I am proclaiming, “If Christ is the Lord, submit to him and embrace his gospel; but if whatever other religion or philosophy you embrace is true, then follow it.” In either case, a decision must be made. “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”2.
