What is the Reformation?

In the sixteenth century, God raised up men such as Martin Luther and John Calvin to bring about a reformation within the church. Those who were involved in this reformation were eventually labeled "Protestants" because of their protests against certain beliefs and practices of the church. This reformation was a call for fidelity to biblical Christianity.

Five specific distinctives characterized the Protestant Reformation (The 5 Solas)

Fundamental to these five articles is the most distinctive aspect of Reformed theology, the unequivocal and unconditioned sovereignty of God. The Reformers affirmed that God rules over His creation with absolute power and authority, determining what will and does occur. Whether circumstances, sin, or the rebellion of His creatures, nothing will ever alarm, frustrate, or defeat our sovereign God.
