Our Mission & Vision
Connecting Christians to the Christ of Scripture
Historic Christians, since the time of Christ’s glorious exaltation to the right hand of the Father, were biblically committed to their chief end: the glory of God and the enjoyment of Christ in living in a holy manner…coram deo (before his face). It is with these same goals that we approach Reformed.org.
The glory of God and the fruit of holy living is a primary goal of our faith, Jesus being our chief cornerstone. Are we walking in that faith? Are we walking in the power and victorious living of the Holy Spirit? Would others describe us in this way?
At Reformed.org, it is our hope and prayer that these sparkles of divine glory found in the articles and books on this site promote these characteristics of biblical faith and holy living in our readers. With this in mind, we look forward to the day when the Master will tell us, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant,” (Matthew 25:23), but we are content to pray asking Christ to make your time here profitable to your soul, aiding you in a your faithful journey to be more conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.

Praying Before the Face of God
How good are you at Secret Prayer?
Jesus Christ, the Divine Son of Man, is God's Only Appointed Savior of Men
“And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world,” (1 John 4:14).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved,” (John 3:16-17).
“And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world,” (John 4:42).
“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world,” (John 9:5).
The Five Solas of the Reformation
That Scripture alone (the 39 books of the OT and the 27 books of the NT) is the sole rule and standard for faith and practice before God. (Luke 16:29, 31; 24:27, 44; 2 Tim. 3:15-16; John 5:46-47)
That Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. (Isa. 42:1; 1 Peter 1:19-20; Acts 3:22; Heb. 5:5-6; Psa. 2:6; Luke 1:33; Eph. 1:22-23; Heb. 1:2; Acts 17:31; Isa. 53:10; John 17:6; Rom. 8:30)
That by God’s good pleasure alone, some men are saved to the praise of Christ’s glorious grace; others are left in their sin to their just condemnation, to the praise of His glorious justice. (1 Tim. 5:21; Matt. 25:34; Eph. 1:5-6; Rom. 9:22-23; Jude 1:4)
That grace of faith where people are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, and is ordinarily worked by the ministry of the preached Word. (2 Cor. 4:13; Eph. 2:8; Rom. 10:14, 17; Luke 17:5; 1 Peter 2:2; Acts 20:32)
Glory of God Alone
Knowing that man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever, all holy duties Christians accomplish are exercised for God’s glory, by which He may pursue His own glory in us to the uttermost. (Rom. 11:36; 1 Cor. 10:31; Psa. 73:24-28)
Reformed Theology and Apologetics is dedicated to providing biblically sound online resources for the edification of God’s church, and the conversion of the nations to Christ’s glory. We are committed to the system of doctrine known as Calvinism (which is far more extensive than the doctrines of grace or TULIP), being the most biblically faithful systematization of the Bible’s teachings concerning our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Owners are dedicated servants of Jesus Christ committed to the bible and a strict subscriptionist view of the 1647 Westminster Standards, and worship at Grace Chapel in Crossville, TN.
