The Reformation of the Western Church is one of the most significant events in the history of the church. Without the reformation, there would be just one Catholic church, and we would have little of the freedom we enjoy today.
If you identify in any way with the Protestant tradition, the reformation is part of your Christian heritage, and contributes to who you are and your life today.
On October 14, 2017 Dr Stephen Yuille, (Ph.D. Historical Theology, London School of Theology) presented at Faith Bible Church's first conference Rediscovering the Reformation. Take a look at the presentations below.
By the fifteenth century, the Roman Catholic Church had succumbed to moral and doctrinal corruption. People didn't know how to remedy the situation. Thankfully, God raised up a generation of preachers who championed the truth of His sovereign grace in the salvation of man. By the power of God these men shook the world. This was the Reformation. In this session, we'll review the history of the church from the day of Pentecost to the eve of the Reformation, and consider those events that set the stage for one of the most significant events in human history.
The Reformation Was In Many Ways A Struggle Between Two Latin Words: Et (And) And Sola (Alone). The Roman Catholic Church Affirmed The Authority Of Scripture And Tradition, Salvation By Grace And Effort, Justification By Faith And Works; Moreover, It Pointed People To Christ And Saints, Masses, Pilgrimages, Penances, And Indulgences, As The Way To Obtain Peace With God. In Marked Contrast, The Reformers Affirmed Five Great Solas - Scripture Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone, And God's Glory Alone. In These Sessions, We Will Consider The Meaning Of These Five Solas, And How They Are Still Relevant For Today's Church.
