Jon Cardwell preached a Reformation Day Message at Sovereign Grace Baptist Church yesterday, October 30, 2011 during the morning service. His text was taken from Titus 3.5-8 and the message was titled, “The Doctrines of Grace.” As the congregation had been studying the book of Genesis, Jon ties several of the familiar passages of Genesis into an understanding of these doctrines. This message was also timely as the anniversary for the Synod of Dordt, which convened on November 13, 1618, conducting 154 meetings until they adjourned on May 9, 1619.
