Why Events

Reformation means standing against the spirit of the age, so pastors and church leaders must join together to encourage, equip, and embolden one another in the work of the Reformation. Most importantly, a society brings the Word of God and prayer to bear on the leaders themselves, strengthening them for the work of a faithful shepherd.

How Directory

Reformation starts in your local church community. The Reformation Societies are the means to achieving the renewal of the Church, which is our Lord’s Bride. Furthermore, our Gospel is timeless in its message, relevance, and sufficiency for the building of Christ’s Church, the same yesterday, today, and forever. The Biblical standard of Gospel preaching, teaching and worship are embodied in the Solas of the Protestant Reformation and are now stated in the Cambridge Declaration of 1996. For in Scripture alone, we learn of a salvation that is by grace alone, received through faith alone, because of Christ alone, and in all this, to God be the Glory alone. Here We Stand, like-minded in His service and confident in His Work.

Vanity Fair, or the hostile world system, is under the dominion of Satan (John 5:19; 12:31; 14:30; 16:11). The world is his sphere of influence. In much the same way, the spirit of the antichrist which is coming, is even now, already in the world (I John 4:3) along with many false prophets who have gone out into the world (I John 4:1). Vanity Fair, the world, is an all-inclusive term for all those who the in the kingdom of darkness and have not been born of God (John 3:3).

Your support of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals makes a big impact.

The Cambridge Declaration notes “Churches today are increasingly dominated by the spirit of this age rather than by the Spirit of Christ.” This is still true today.

You are part of the bold initiative of bringing about a Reformed awakening that James Boice launched almost 30 years ago. Your prayers, participation, and financial support allow the Alliance to continue this important work. I thank you.

In Pilgrim’s Progress, Christian and Faithful were bad-mouthed and heckled as they entered the city known as Vanity Fair. As pilgrims who marched to the beat of a different drummer, Christian and Faithful looked (dressed) and spoke differently — something to which the townsfolk took great exception. It is interesting that it was, in particular, their speech that caused such offense.

What is meant by the phrase or title Vanity Fair? Vanity Fair is described in various dictionaries as the “vain and frivolous way of life especially in large cities,” and the “place or scene of vulgarity or empty, idle amusement and frivolity,” (trivial; unimportant; silly’ foolish). For John Bunyan, Vanity Fair is the world in all its gaudiness: alluring and seductive, offering merchandise of all kinds — some innocent enough in themselves but designed to misdirect the affections away from our love for God and our love for His kingdom.

When I was growing up in Lincoln Park, MI, part of a larger community known as the Downriver area of Metropolitan Detroit, there was a shopping center 2.5 miles from my parent’s home. It was called the Lincoln Park Plaza. All of the some ten Downriver communities had these kind of shopping plazas. Some still exist.
