"...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.

    When I read my Bible through

    Yes I thought I knew my Bible
    Reading piecemeal, hit or miss
    Now a part of John or Matthew
    Then a bit of Genesis

    Certain chapters of Isaiah
    Certain psalms, the twenty-third.
    First of Proverbs, twelfth of Romans
    Yes, I thought I knew the Word

    But I found that thorough reading
    Was a different thing to do
    And the way was unfamiliar
    When I read my Bible through.

    You who like to play at Bible
    Dip and dabble here and there
    Just before you kneel all weary
    Yawning through a hurried prayer.

    You who treat this crown of writings
    As you treat no other book
    Just a paragraph disjointed
    Just a crude impatient look.

    Try a worthier proceedure
    Try a broad and steady view;
    You will kneel in awesome wonder
    When you read the Bible through.
