“But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word,
but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.” - 2 Cor 4:2
Writings on Martin Luther’s life and teachings
Celebrating the Reformation is a deeply personal occasion for Reformed Christians every year. The Reformation commenced in 1517 and drew to a watershed moment with Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms in 1521. Modern Protestantism was born from the Reformation and is shaped by it. Nevertheless, the church has not stopped battling with heresies both inside and outside of the church in the last five hundred years. Hence the need for the Protestant church to continue examining its doctrines and practices in order to keep reforming herself.
This year, CERC celebrated the 504th anniversary of the Reformation on 31st October in tandem with preaching on the book of Titus as part of a two-year biblical theological series called God’s Story. It was a church-wide celebration with even the youth and children having their own Reformation celebration parties.
Reformation Sunday is an occasion for Christians to revisit and appreciate precious church history, such as Luther’s trial at the Diet of Worms in 1521, and also to thank God for the work He is doing in His church.
