"...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.

    The Spirit Gives Life, the Flesh Counts for Nothing

    "… no one can COME TO ME unless it is granted him by the Father." ( Jn. 6:65); “All that the Father gives me will COME TO ME, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.” ( Jn. 6:37) IN other words Jesus teaches that no one will trust in or have faith in Him unless God grants it (John 6:65), and ALL those whom God grants will trust or have faith in Him. This universal positive and universal negative spoken by Jesus forces us to conclude that all persons that God grants to Jesus will infallibly come to faith in him. The magnitude of Jesus' words become evident, and it allows for no synergistic interpretation. For "It is the Spirit that quickens [gives life, regenerates]. the flesh counts for nothing." (Jm. 6:63)
