Sola Gratia

WHY ME? To say Grace Alone (Sola Gratia), we are saying that the CAUSE of our salvation is the Grace of God alone.  We did not “do” anything to earn his favor.  God did NOT “look down the corridor of time” and find that we pleased Him, and so choose us. In fact, His selection of […]

IN THE BEGINNING… God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and void, and darkness covered the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the waters.  And God said, “Let there be Light.” Gen 1:1 Was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word […]
