"...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.

    Those things that ARE Revealed

    While we wholeheartedly affirm that there are indeed many mysteries about God we were not meant to understand this side of eternity, and perhaps will never fully comprehend. But the Bible declares that those things that ARE revealed WERE MEANT for us and our children (Deut. 29:29). In other words, if Jesus talked about something and He put it in Scripture, He meant that we should hear it, talk about it, think about it, form our understanding with regard to it, preach about it, apply it, and obey it on THIS side of eternity. The refusal to want to take the time to learn more about Jesus in the Text is really so much of what is wrong with Christianity today. Certain evangelicals appear to have no interest in applying themselves to Scripture and would rather believe in a generic Jesus who we form in our own image.

    I would much prefer to have a heated but irenic debate with a theological opponent than to hear someone say, "we should just love Jesus and forget about the rest", as if you could love a Jesus whom you don't really know. Which Jesus should we love?
