The Protestant Reformation was a recovery of the biblical doctrine of salvation by God’s favor (grace) alone (sola gratia), through faith (trusting, resting, and receiving) alone (sola fide), in Christ alone and the Christian life governed by Scripture alone (sola Scriptura) as the final authority for the Christian faith and the Christian life. The Protestant Reformation was a gospel Reformation and that is a cause worth carrying on. One of the organizations helping to do that, especially in the Presbyterian Church in America, is the Gospel Reformation Network. Their purpose is “to cultivate healthy Reformed Churches in the PCA.” They have seven parts to their statement of purpose and the Rev Dr Jon Payne is on campus this week to talk with our faculty and students about the GRN. He is senior pastor of Christ Church Presbyterian (PCA) in Charleston, SC Before that, he was a PCA pastor near Atlanta. He Is a trustee of the Banner of Truth Trust. He studied at New College, Edinburgh and he is the Executive Coordinator of the Gospel Reformation Network and editor of and contributor to the Lectio Continua Expository Commentary series and the author of several books including John Owen on the Lord’s Supper and In the Splendor Of Holiness: Rediscovering the Beauty of Reformed Worship for the 21st Century.
