On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. The stroke of that hammer thundered with unprecedented spiritual force, setting in motion the Protestant Reformation which turned God's people away from man-made inventions for approaching God and towards the five “Solas” that serve as its core. Join us as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of this powerful movement of God.
