The Gospel and the Reformation and the Reformed 23-25 Jan 2014
Luther. Calvin. Edwards. Whitefield. Piper. Chandler. You?
They're all hard acts to follow. Each so clearly stood or stand for the Gospel that their ministries led to The Reformation, to entire Protestant denominations coming into existence, and to Christians who hold to the orthodox faith being identified as the Reformed.
Hard acts to follow indeed.
What isn't so open to negotiation though is the defense of The Faith. What isn't subject to discussion is who has to defend it. The very same reasons for why men like Luther did what they did in the first place still exists in this time and place.
Christian - Do you know why you must be what they were for their times?

Since FWC began it has strived to put the Gospel where it belongs in the minds of those doing God's ministry - in the centre of our church's existence.
As we progressed in the last few years at examining our lives and the ministry we seek to do in light of our contemporary culture, we now take a step back to consider matters in light of those who went before us - The Reformers. Let us all as those who love God's church be encouraged this FWC 14 to have the courage to be Protestant.
