The Doctrines of Grace

The preaching and teaching ministry of Christ Church emphasizes the so-called “doctrines of grace,” also known popularly as the “5 points of Calvinism”.  Actually,  the “5 points,” as we know them,  are not original with the 16th century church reformer, John Calvin, but represent a useful theological summary of his teaching regarding salvation. These “doctrines of grace” are so named because they magnify God’s saving grace in salvation and, properly understood,  give unspeakable joy and comfort to anybody who has ever despaired of saving himself.    They are often set forth in an easily remembered acrostic, TULIP.
