The Protestant Reformation, Celebrating 500 Years (1517-2017)
Grace alone (sola gratia), faith alone (sola fide), Scripture alone (sola scriptura), these are concepts that are ingrained in us as evangelical believers. And yet, these profound understandings of God and salvation have not always been so evident. Regardless of our particular historical Christian lineage, all evangelicals are indebted to the great work of the Protestant Reformation. Tomorrow and continuing through October, we will begin a four-part series of messages examining some of the great teachings that have come to us as a result of the Reformation. Each week, we will profile a key individual and their contribution to the Reformation as well as significant Scriptures that elaborate upon the great themes of the Gospel.
I hope you will join us for worship each Sunday as we rejoice in the Gospel of our salvation that has been “entrusted to the saints” (Jude 3). We begin tomorrow, Sunday, October 8th with the message, “John Calvin, for the Glory of God.” Below is the October schedule of messages.
8 John Calvin
15 Menno Simmons
22 Ulrich Zwingli
29 Martin Luther (Lord’s Supper)
“I thank my God every time I remember you.” Philippians 1:3
