The character of this branch of protestant Christianity is captured well by several historic slogans: emphasis on “scripture alone” as the only authority for life and faith, on “grace alone” as the only hope for salvation , on “faith alone” as the only necessary condition of man toward salvation, on “Christ alone” as the only mediator between God and man, on “glory to God alone” as the supreme reason for everything we do. Reformed churches believe God is sovereign over every part and aspect of created reality, from politics to geology. Therefore, Reformed churches proclaim the need for the Kingdom of God to influence all areas of life. That is why Reformed churches frequently also establish Christian schools.
