"...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.

    Prayer for Pastor P J Smyth, his family and the God First Church

    Please pray for P J Smyth, pastor of God First Church in Johannesburg, South Africa. He is facing the battle of his life with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (cancer of the Lymph glands). Thankfully, it is localised to his neck and chest, with no signs of any cancer elsewhere in his body. This is classified as Hodgkin’s Stage 2a which is better than stage 2b, or 3 or 4, but not as good as stage 1. In the video below PJ describes the situation and his own response to it which is very heartening and faith building. - JS
