Upcoming Sermon Series: 5 Solas

Coming up on 31 October is the 500th anniversary of when Martin Luther famously posted his 95 Theses on the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany, formally beginning the Protestant Reformation. Because this is such a monumental event in the life of the Church, starting 1 October, we’ve decided to dedicate some time to the 5 Solas the Protestant Reformation. These are:

  1. Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.
  2. Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
  3. Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
  4. Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.
  5. Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.

These are pillars of the Christian faith. However, we didn’t want to just talk theology so instead we’ve decided to use the 5 solas to teach about 5 common myths that many people have of Christianity:

  1. The Bible can’t be trusted
  2. So long as I do good things God will accept me
  3. Christians are just good people
  4. Jesus isn’t all Christians claim Him to be
  5. Christianity is just another man made religion

We’re asking you to seriously pray into these 5 Sunday morning Services and start to invite your friends, neighbours and co-workers to hear how the radical message of the gospel is not only unique, it’s life changing.
