In Christ Alone

The music used in worship must always be glorifying to our Sovereign Christ and supply accurate and edifying doctrine for his saints.  The age in which we live is not the first to have an apparrent lack of talented songwriters that fulfill those two requirements. 

However, in 2002 Stuart Townsend wrote the lyrics and Keith Getty the music to “In Christ Alone”.   The haunting melody by Getty is the canvas upon which Townsend painted an accurate doctrinal picture.  I’ll never forget the first time I heard the song.  It has blessed my soul many times since.  I trust that it blesses you.

About Greg Coleman

I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
