The Gospel According to John: Hear, Believe and Live
Romans 6:15-25 Whose Slave are you? (ESV p 1121)
Call to Worship:What is Sola Scriptura?We Believe that the Bible alone is the only infallible, final authority for all faith and practice.
What is Sola Gratia?We believe that we can to nothing to earn God’s favor. New life in Jesus is nothing if not the free gift of God.
What is Sola Fide?We believe that every man, woman, and child is a sinner, having transgressed the high standards of God’s character and moral law. Salvation, therefore, is only possible through faith in the life, death burial, resurrection, ascension, and enthronement of Jesus Christ.
What is Solus Christus?We believe that this grace comes only through faith in the work of Jesus: Faith that our sins were covered on the cross; faith that we are covered by Jesus’ blood and righteousness and accepted and adopted by the Father.
What is Soli Deo Gloria?We believe that all of life is to be lived for the glory of God alone, fully satisfied with all that He is, and all that He has done for us in Jesus.

*Christ is Risen, He Is Risen Indeed (p 308)

New City Catechism Question 27:Are all people, just as they were lost through Adam, saved through Christ?No, only those who are elected by God and united to Christ by faith. Nevertheless God in his mercy demonstrates common grace even to those who are not elect, by restraining the effects of sin and enabling works of culture for human well-being.
Scripture Memory:Joshua 1:8The Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
