Shekinah Church – Our 43rd Year

We are a community of Christian believers, who are in association with John Knox Presbyterian Church. We are committed to:

  • The Bible as our only rule of faith and practice. It is inerrant, infallible, inspired by God in its original autographs, and preserved by Him for His people throughout the ages.
  • The Westminster Standards, which include the doctrines of grace, which are known by the acronym TULIP.
  • The preaching of The Word, the exercise of Church discipline, and the right celebration of the sacraments.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Q. 70. What is justification?

A. Justification is an act of God’s free grace unto sinners,[286] in which he pardoneth all their sins, accepteth and accounteth their persons righteous in his sight;[287] not for any thing wrought in them, or done by them,[288] but only for the perfect obedience and full satisfaction of Christ, by God imputed to them,[289] and received by faith alone.[290]
