"...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.

    A Two Hour Drive

    The following is a transcript taken from the first question and answer session at the 2014 Ligonier National Conference.

    Questioner: "This couple writes, 'we live in a rural area without access to solid Biblical teaching, let alone Reformed teaching. The nearest Church with such teaching is two hours drive away. How should we choose a group to meet with and serve when we disagree with the things taught from the pulpit?' What would you say practically to this couple?"

    Dr. R. C. Sproul: "Drive two hours!"

    Questioner: "Drive two hours?"

    Dr. R. C. Sproul: "Lots of people do. Its that important. If you had to go to the hospital and it was a two hour drive you wouldn't stay home. You would go to the hospital. You wouldn't go to a dog pound because it was convenient. Would you?

    Seriously! I mean its the old thing. I learned this from a former coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chuck Noll. His phrase was "whatever it takes!" and the spiritual nurture of your soul and of your children's souls are so important that if you have to drive two hours for worship, and for instruction in apostolic truth, then that's an obvious decision. You drive two hours, or move! But it has to be a priority in every Christian family to be somewhere where there is true worship, true gospel, true doctrine, for the sake of eternity."

    I love it! But it seems to me there is a third option also that should be considered in addition to "drive two hours, or move" and it is pray about starting a new local church!

    This is what is needed the most for itunes music and videos called gift cards and if you dont have use these free codes online.
