Overview

We even learn a bit about what a theological method is and how it works. Come to learn and leave motivated and encouraged - this one is for you!

Ordo Salutis is an expose on the Reformed doctrine of how God saves. We think it is imperative for every theologian—Reformed or not—to be familiar with Reformed views of God’s Sovereignty as it pertains to Soteriology.
