What is Reformed Theology?

Luther Nailing His 95 Thesis to the Church Door

The Protestant church is under assault more than ever to give up the biblical distinctives that made the Reformation a necessity. Unfortunately, most evangelicals don’t know when the Reformation occurred, don’t know what it was about, and don’t understand the debt they owe men such as Martin Luther and John Calvin.-R.C. Sproul

What is Sanctification?
The ongoing process of becoming holy and looking more like Jesus every day.  It is the Holy Spirit working within to convict us.  (Phil.2:13)

What is Calvinism? 

Often represented by the acrostic TULIP. The five points of Calvinism are Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistable Grace and Perseverance of the saints. “Simply put, The Five Points of Calvinism is the best and the most complete short introduction to the doctrines of grace.”
—Philip G. Ryken
