"...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.

    Jesus Kristus Kurios

    It was a typical day in ancient Rome. As they entered the dreaded arena they had only to say two words and they could live: Kaiser Kurios - Caesar is Lord. Instead they proclaimed: Jesus Kristus Kurios — Jesus Christ is Lord — and paid for the privilege with their blood.

    The early Christians followed Christ, not out of mere preference, but out of conviction. Can we say the same thing?

    Chris Powers recently put a video together based on the song "All I Have is Christ" written by Jordan Kauflin. He sets the song in the context of preaching Christ in a country that’s closed to the gospel. I found it very moving. Let me know what you think. - JS

    Lyrics

    I once was lost in darkest night
    Yet thought I knew the way
    The sin that promised joy and life
    Had led me to the grave
    I had no hope that You would own
    A rebel to Your will
    And if You had not loved me first
    I would refuse You still

    But as I ran my hell-bound race
    Indifferent to the cost
    You looked upon my helpless state
    And led me to the cross
    And I beheld God’s love displayed
    You suffered in my place
    You bore the wrath reserved for me
    Now all I know is grace

    Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
    Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

    Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
    And live so all might see
    The strength to follow Your commands
    Could never come from me
    Oh Father, use my ransomed life
    In any way You choose
    And let my song forever be
    My only boast is You

    Very moving indeed.......

    alone, without the animation, it is moving and foreboding. I would want to have some praise singing before and afterwards as the sound is a bit rich in tones and strength.

    The animation did help otherwise.
