From the Pastor
The Four Alones
This coming Sunday, MLC will begin a four-week sermon series based on the four "alones" of the Reformation.  The four "alones" are: grace alone, faith alone, Christ alone, and Scripture alone.  Occasionally, a person will see these four "alones" and be confused.  After all, alone means one and not many.  When it comes to the "alones", the reason there are many is because each one answers a different question about the nature our salvation.  Worked out in a brief way, we are saved by grace alone and not by works.  This salvation is received through faith alone and cannot be earned.  Christ alone is the one who has made this grace available to us by his perfect obedience under the law, his substitutionary death on the cross, and his resurrection from the grave.  We have come to know and receive this grace, this faith, and this Christ by way of Scripture alone.
