What was the Protestant Reformation?

We welcome you to come and worship with us this week on Reformation Sunday (October 30) at Emmaus Road Reformed Church.  We will hear a sermon on 2 Corinthians 5:21 entitled The Great Exchange focused on the doctrine of justification by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.  Come and join us as we praise God for his faithfulness in preserving his church from generation to generation. 

As we pay particular attention to the Protestant Reformation during this last week in October, it is important to point out that one key aspect of the Protestant Reformation of the 1500′s was the teaching on the five solas.  What are the five solas?  Well, that question is answered in the article below, which was written by Dr. James M. Boice (1938-2000).  Dr. Boice was a PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) pastor and scholar who pastored Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.  He reminds us all of the essential truths handed down to us by the great Protestant Reformers such as: Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, and Huldrych Zwingli.
