The Cultural Mandate

January 15, 2018  |  Joe Boot, Ryan Eras, and Steven Martins

The word culture has been used in wildly different ways. What do we actually mean by culture? Is culture something that just happens for most of us, or do we all have some level of responsibility for what our culture looks like?

Always Reforming

September 19, 2017  |  Ryan Eras

The Reformation was a developing movement that strove to be faithful to the constant touchpoint of Scripture, in our own time we should be mindful of the constant need to submit our doctrines, beliefs, and experiences to the inspired, authoritative Word of God, and to interpret all of life and history in light of that Word.

MPPs say Farewell to Family

December 12, 2016  |  Joe Boot and Ryan Eras

The Ontario Legislature’s decision to approve the “All Families Are Equal” Act is a mockery of justice and a galling misappropriation of God’s design for the family.

Islam

August 21, 2016  |  Belteshazzar, Joe Boot, Marvin Albert, Ryan Eras, Steven Martins, and Tony Costa

Islam has positioned itself as a correction and completion of Judaism and Christianity. However, Islam and the Quran are incompatible with Christian doctrine and the text of Scripture. The church must take the growth of Islam seriously; it is a movement and a worldview that is as political as it is religious, with significant implications for culture and society. As heralds of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are entrusted with delivering the good news of the gospel to Muslims, to declare freedom in Christ from slavery to sin, and to present Christ, not sinful man, as the sovereign King who rules justly and righteously.
