"...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 New Birth: Signs of Life

    Text: John 1:12,13

    Before someone can enter the kingdom of God they need a miracle. More than that, they need to BE a miracle - to be born again. Amazingly, this new birth is not under man's control. The right bloodline (family or national heritage), human effort or even human will are no factors whatsoever. God alone can do this and when He does, He does so Sovereignly and invisibly.

    Jesus compared the new birth to the activity of wind. Wind seems to have a mind of its own and yet wherever the wind blows, evidence is left behind. What kind of evidence should each of us be looking for that might assure our hearts that we indeed have been born of God?
