The Reformation: Then And Now
Sermon Series Description
Why should we be interested in the sixteenth century reformation? Most evangelicals think we have no need to rehash the issues that divided the church centuries ago. These eight messages argue the opposite: the basic theological clarifications that divided the church back then are still relevant today. Join us and see how God used imperfect people to carry the gospel onward from generation to generation.

MartinLuther broke Roman Catholicism’s monopoly over men’s souls by uncovering the Gospel.

The Anabaptists were martyred for advocating the separation of church and state.
The Protestant movement flourished in England due to the faithfulness of martyrs like Ridley, Latimer, and Cramner.
God uses imperfect saints, and John Knox was a perfect example of imperfect.
