Fatherhood: Beyond the Obvious (Luke 11:9-13)
God uses the model of human fatherhood to teach us how he is our Father.
Like our Heavenly Father cares for us, our human fathers are commissioned
to Provide, Protect, and Direct their children.

Our Reformed Heritage #9. Practical Sovereignty (Ephesians 1:11-12)
God’s Sovereign power is that vital and practical anchor for the soul. His promises alone grip the real ground that holds his people fast through life’s turmoils and trials.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies

In the mid 1500’s Geneva became a gathering place for those who wanted to return Christianity to its biblical foundations. Under the leadership of John Calvin scholars, ministers, and concerned students gathered to compare all they believed and practiced with God’s word as preserved in Scripture.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies was founded in 1993 to continue that practice in our own period of history. Our desire is to apply God’s word to our own lives and to the world around us. Our goal is to reform (reshape) our lives to fit the mold that our Creator has given us in his written word.
