Romans 1:16 - "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile."

Why Reformed?

Why reformed theology? The answer without any apology or compromise is this, "God is King and Ruler over everything."

Virtually all other systems of theology say they agree, but when taken a closer look at they place man on the throne along with God, at least in part.

So what is at the heart of reformed theology? To start there are five main points entitled "The Five Solas."

  • Sola Scriptura - Scripture Alone
  • Sola Christus - Christ Alone
  • Sola Gratia - Grace Alone
  • Sola Fide - Faith Alone
  • Soli Deo Gloria – To God Alone Be The Glory

We will look closer at each one of these Solas and follow this up with a look at The Doctrines of Grace.
