I created Puritan Board. It was actually my idea. Matt McMahon did the teching initially-but the idea was mine! 😉 The PuritanBoard is a great resource; If you haven’t ever visited, I encourage you to do so.
Here are some of my convictions in the Christian faith:
Church Government- Presbyterian.
Theology Proper- Trinitarian Christian
Christology- Hypostatic Union
Pnuematology- Effectual enabling of the Holy Spirit.
Epistemology- Propositional Revelation
Bibliology- Covenant Theology.
Hermeneutics- Grammatical Historical.
Philosophy- The Bible alone is the Word of God.
Soteriology- Justification by Faith, Calvinistic-Monergism.
Lapsarianism- Supralapsarian/Infralapsarian/Panlapsarian-but I lean more towards supra.
Anthropolgy- Total human depravity, no “age of accountability”
Ecclesiastic Authority- Sola Scriptura.
Cosmology- Biblical Creationist
I hold to the 5 Solas of the Reformation, and the 5 points of Calvinism:
SOLI DEO GLORIA
Perseverance of the Saints
I hold to exclusive psalmody in worship as it is commanded of God.
I hold to wine as an element in the Lord’s Supper as it is commanded of God.
Statement of Faith:
I subscribe fully to the WCF w/ an item or two that I might struggle with.
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and born of the Father before all ages. God of God, light of light, true God of true God. Begotten not made, consubstantial to the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And was incarnate of the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary and was made man; was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried; and the third day rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of the Father, and shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, of whose Kingdom there shall be no end. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father (and the Son), who together with the Father and the Son is to be adored and glorified, who spoke by the Prophets. And one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.”
“My chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.”(WSC Q.1)
There are many other reformed documents that I hold dear; many will be found embedded within the pages of this website.
Ever since my conversion, I have endeavored to know everything I can of the Lord and His ways. Just like the merchant who purchased the field, I pursue the pearl of great price; I will find it no matter what, if it is the last thing I do. I pray your time here is beneficial to your soul.

I will leave you with Phil 4:8:
8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
