"...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 Lord on Monergistic Regeneration

    "And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live...Then you shall know that I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it, declares the LORD." - Ezekiel 37:14
    And this Trinitarian quote on monergistic regeneration from Jesus' discussion with some unbelieving Jews:
    "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. ...And he said, "This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father." John 6:63, 65

    i.e. no one can believe in Jesus unless the Father grants it through the quickening work of the Spirit
