"...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.

    Some Quotes to Ponder

    "No one who has ever truly understood their own heart, their own guilt, and the holiness of God, could ever trade the finished work of Christ for the never-perfecting charade of the Romanist mass, the medieval myth of purgatory and indulgences, and the legion of alter Christi who daily attempt to sew up the rent veil." - James White

    "The demands of following Christ will cost you everything. But you gain far more than you give up. You give up dirt for diamonds." - Steve Lawson

    "Ever heard of anyone executed for distributing copies of Grimm’s fairy tales? Imagine people trying to smuggle copies of Hans Christian Andersen’s works into China? The Bible, which has been called a mere collection of myths has suffered all of these fates: even today, copies of the Bible are banned and burned. There’s something about this ancient book that threatens and frightens those in power." - Eric Metaxas

    "Just as a jeweler in a store will always use a black velvet background to display the splendor of an exquisite diamond, so the intricate, dazzling beauty of the gospel is only fully seen when we understand what the Bible says about man’s radical condition outside of Christ. Its a bleak and dark picture to be sure. Yet only when we understand the immensity of the problem can we find the right solution – and see the futility of all other man made remedies. We need far more than a moral pep talk; more than some medical first aid for our gaping wounds; and even more than even an oxygen mask to help us breathe more easily. What we need is a miracle! What we need is a resurrection!" - John Samson

    "The holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him." - C. H. Spurgeon

    "How dare you say 'Oh, so you are just a homemaker' to the hero of my children." - Sinclair Ferguson

    "There are no disappointments to those whose wills are buried in the will of God." - Frederick Faber

    "There is mercy for a sinner, but there is no mercy for the man who will not own himself a sinner." - C. H. Spurgeon

    "It is not hard to deceive ministers, relatives and friends. But it is impossible to deceive Christ." - J. C. Ryle
