Sola Fide: Justification by Faith Alone

Justification is the gracious act—not a process—of God in which God declares [pronounces] righteous the sinner who believes on Jesus. This great doctrine is under attack from the most unsuspected sources—even those who outwardly espouse it.

The glorious doctrine of justification by faith is one of the fundamentals of the faith that was championed by Martin Luther and sparked the Protestant Reformation.

What Makes Good Friday Good?

We call it Good Friday, but how can death, suffering, pain, sadness, and darkness be good? Despite the somber and sorrowful events of the day, Good Friday is ultimately considered “good.” For the Christian, this day represents the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made for the whole world.

Easter Week Scripture Reading Plan

We’ve compiled a list of Scripture readings for you to meditate on and pray over each day this week as we joyously anticipate Resurrection Sunday. Following this plan, you can focus on a different aspect of Jesus’ final days: Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, His anointing, the cleansing of the temple, the Last Supper with His closest followers, His arrest, His trial before Pilate, and His burial. Happy reading!

The Sufficiency of Scripture

What do we mean when we claim that the Bible is the inspired Word of God? Many would agree that the Bible is a sacred book. Many are willing to concede that, but they do not believe that it is the only sacred book. They believe that the Bible contains the words of God but is not the Word of God since they think that there are other complements to it.

But if we are not sure that we have an inerrant book in our hands, how can we be sure of the veracity of anything that we read in it?

Eternal Life Starts Now

While it is easy for us to find our identity in what we do, I am so thankful that earning God’s acceptance is not based on my performance, but based on the perfect performance of Jesus Christ. His love for me is not based on a job title, but based on my being His child. And as His child, I often choose temporal over eternal investments, yet God’s love for me remains the same. And I have found that the motivating desire to invest in the eternal is birthed out of the knowledge that God will accept and love me even if I fail.

Music—What We Do and Why

We strive for a God-focused approach to all our music. Does the text and music explicitly reveal truth about God in what it says? Does it point to the Gospel as the only hope for man? Does it accurately proclaim truth? Does the music further implicitly reflect God’s goodness, order, beauty, holiness, and righteousness?

Once Saved, Always Saved

The life God gives to us at the moment of salvation is both eternal and divine. Since it is eternal, it can never be lost. Since it is divine, it overpowers sin and self. God is not an “Indian giver!” Neither is He a permissive Father to His children!

How to Have Your Sins Forgiven

Jesus Christ came into this world on a search-and-rescue mission. He said of Himself, “the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).

So now the question becomes, “From what do I need to be saved?” The answer to that is two-fold.

There are so many different views on baptism held by the various denominations, that about the only thing shared in common is the word itself. Surely this confusion is of Satan, when that which started almost 2,000 years ago as a simple, beautiful ordinance has now become cluttered with man’s traditions and reasoning.

What is the real meaning of baptism? Who qualifies to be baptized? Do I have to be baptized? How is baptism to be administered?
