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.

Redemption is Christ purchasing our salvation through His shed blood (Acts 20:28; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20; Galatians 3:13; 4:4, 5; Ephesians 1:7; Col. 1:14; 1 Timothy 2:5, 6; Titus 2:14; Hebrews 9:12; 1 Peter 1:18, 19; Revelation 5:9), Propitiation is Christ enduring the righteous wrath of God in place of sinners (Exodus 25:17; Leviticus 16; Hebrews 9:1-5; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 2:2; 4:1), and Justification is God declaring the sinner righteous on the basis of the imputed righteousness of Christ based upon His substitutionary atonement on the cross (Romans 5:1-10; 10:1-9; 2 Corinthians 5:21). All three are contained in the gospel.

How then is spiritual regeneration and effectual calling accomplished? I submit through the centrality of the gospel in preaching wherein the Holy Spirit regenerates the fallen sinner thereby enabling him/her to repent of sin (2 Timothy 2:25) and turn by faith to Christ for salvation (Romans 3:31-28). The proclamation of the gospel, and the centrality of the same, is indispensable in applying the completed work of redemption, propitiation and justification which Christ accomplished on the cross.

The true nature of saving faith became one of the watershed issues during the Protestant Reformation. In his introduction to Martin Luther’s Bondage of the Will, J.I. Packer writes:

The ability to believe the gospel is not inherent within the sinner, but rather is a sovereign gift from God. That is to say the ability to believe the gospel unto salvation in Jesus Christ is as much a sovereign gift from God as the salvation in Jesus Christ in which the sinner believes. John Calvin comments, “Everything connected with our salvation ought to be ascribed to God as its author.”

The church must remember the gospel is the power of God. The gospel evidences and contains God’s inherent power, virtue and nature. The gospel is mighty. God’s power, virtue, excellent nature and might are thereby reflected in the very essence of not only the gospel’s message but its ability to change people’s lives. This is why the gospel must be central in preaching.
