SOLA SCRIPTURA || SOLA FIDE || SOLA GRATIA
SOLUS CHRISTUS || SOLI DEO GLORIA
500 years ago *this* October, an Augustinian monk named Martin Luther nailed a seemingly unsuspecting document to the door of a cathedral in Wittenburg, Germany. That document—his "Ninety-Five Theses"—served as the catalyst for a movement that swept across Europe, a movement we refer to today as "the Reformation."
Out of the Reformation emerged a rediscovery of five foundational Christian truths, known as "the Solas." These five tenets—Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone), Sola Fide (Faith alone), Sola Gratia (Grace alone), Solus Christus (in Christ alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (to the glory of God alone)—serve as a reminder of the core teachings of Christian doctrine.
Through the five Sundays of October, we, as a church, will be walking through and celebrating these five truths and the role they have had in Jesus building his church. We hope you'll join us!

HERE WE STAND
Desiring God has put together a helpful resource, in which they take a few minutes each day to examine and tell the story of one of the heroes of the Reformation. Though the nailing of Luther's "Theses" was the primary catalytic act, a movement like the Reformation does not happen in a vacuum, nor does it happen with the actions of only one person. Subscribe to the "Here We Stand" podcast to learn about those who came before Luther and those who followed in his footsteps.
