The Reformation

Celebrating 500 years of renewed recognition

of the supremacy of Sacred Scripture

Part 1 – By Faith Alone

Part 2 – By Scripture Alone

A look back half a millennia ago at the Church reveals a dark, foreboding history. People were being enslaved to the idea that salvation could essentially be purchased through indulgences. It looked like the gates of hell had almost overcome and overrun the Church. But on October 31st, 1517, a German monk named Martin Luther courageously nailed 95 Theses against the Church to the huge wooden door of the Castle church in Wittenberg, Germany. These 95 protests literally set the world ablaze. The results of his act and the events that followed were to become known in history as the Reformation. It transformed all of Christianity and most of organized religion in the West.

At the heart of the Reformation lies the beauty of Scripture, the mandate of the Church, and several foundational biblical doctrines that shape the Christian life. Join us in celebration of the lasting impact of the Reformation in a two-part Bible study, in which we will examine key Bible passages in light of this radical historical backdrop of renewal.
