Reformed Quote of the Month

"The testimony of scripture is so plain that to add anything were superfluous, were it not that the world is almost now come to that blindness, that whatsoever pleases not the princes and the multitude, the same is rejected as doctrine newly forged, and is condemned for heresy."

      - John Knox

Excerpts from the Westminster Confession of Faith Shorter Catechism

What Does it Mean to Be Human?:
A Biblical Assessment of Humanity

In this series "What it Means to Be Human", Pastor Stan McGehee Jr dicusses the problems we as humans face in finding out who we are. In the previous installments he has considered man’s futile search for his true identity and determined that mankind can never know who he is on his own.  Given man’s limited perspective and the pervasive effects of sin, human beings will never be able to ascertain a proper understanding of themselves apart from God’s revelation.  Scripture defines humanity as being in the image of God.  Man’s difficulty in understanding his identity is due to his idolatrous desire to overstep his bounds and declare himself to be something he is not. We are most human when we best reflect the character of God.  Understanding this helps us to properly assess what it means to be human. Read more here.

Choosing my Religion

Monday Night Bible Study

In January we will begin a new study based on the 2004 Ligonier National Conference "A Portrait of God". Many Christians today do not know who God is. Often they come before His presense too lightly, not realizing this is indeed the God who holds their very breath. In this session we will listen to such speakers as R.C. Sproul, Ligon Duncan, Sinclair Ferguson, and many more and study the various attributes of God and how we as His people should respond to them. There is no book for this session so just come in ready for a great time of fellowship and discussion.
