"...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 Common Confession as Christians

    1 Timothy 3: 14 I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that, 15 if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. 16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:

    He [5] was manifested in the flesh,
    [6] by the Spirit, [7]
    seen by angels,
    proclaimed among the nations,
    believed on in the world,
    taken up in glory.

    [5] 3:16 Greek Who; some manuscripts God; others Which
    [6] 3:16 Or justified
    [7] 3:16 Or vindicated in spirit
