Happy Reformation Day!

On this night when we find children walking door to door dressed in costumes asking for candy. Let us remember the event that changed the world by the rediscovery of the gospel. On October 31, 1517 a young and trouble Augustinian monk named Martin Luther posted his 95 thesis against the sale of indulgences by the church of Rome. This spearheaded what we now call the 16th century protestant reformation which influenced our theology, culture, and politics. Let us praise God for the freedom He has provided us to worship and proclaim His gospel of grace and truth.

Sola Fide
Sola Gratia
Sola Cristo
Soli Deo Gloria
Sola Scriptura
