Since October celebrates the start of the Reformation, when Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of the Catholic church in Wittenberg, we began singing a new song for our congregation, called “Sola.”  This song was written by Zac Hicks in 2010 and it celebrates and confesses, through song, the Five Solas that were sparked from the Reformation: Sola Scriptura (the Word Alone), Sola Fide (Faith Alone), Sola Gratia (Grace Alone), Solus Christus (Christ Alone), Soli Deo Gloria (Glory to God Alone).

Why Do We Sing?

Congregational singing lends itself perfectly to the togetherness & vulnerability that the Gospel demands, deserves and seeks of those living in community. We, together, are the people of God. We, together, are the bride of Christ. Therefore, it’s right and good that we, together, with one voice, should express our affections for our great bridegroom, Jesus. – Luke Brawner
