"...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.

    Judgment According to Works

    When all has been said and done, the peoples will all be judged according to their works (Rom 2:6). That's you and me and everyone. With winnowing fork in hand God will separate the wheat and the chaff, which will go into unquenchable fire. Only perfect obedience to the law will measure up and be declared just ... so it is certain that wrath and fury awaits those who trust in themselves. But to you who have been mercifully united to Jesus Christ, your works will be judged to have been perfect (Rom 8:14; Heb 5:7-9) and there will be no more shame forever on that Day, but when we see His face, only eternal felicity.
