What is (sola)s?
1. A ministry in Hattiesburg for college students.
2. The term (sola)s is a reference to (and shorthand for) the “five solas.”
The five solas are five Latin phrases (or slogans) that emerged during the Protestant Reformation and summarize the Reformers’ basic theological beliefs in contradistinction to the teaching of the Church in the day. The Latin word sola means “alone” or “only” in English. The five solas articulated five fundamental beliefs of the Protestant Reformation, pillars which the Reformers believed to be essentials of the Christian life and practice.
the 5 solas are:
sola gratia (grace alone)
sola fide (faith alone)
solus christus (Christ alone)
sola scriptura (Scripture alone)
soli deo gloria (the glory of God alone)
(sola)s conveys the idea that as a ministry we desire to keep the gospel central - that in everything we do we want to be fixed upon Christ. The Reformers were passionate to get the gospel right, and we want to follow their lead. So we hope to never stray from the good news as it is presented to us in Scripture. Our salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.
