The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals was formed in 1994. In April 1996, the Alliance held its first major meeting of evangelical scholars. The Cambridge Declaration, first presented at this meeting, is a call to the evangelical church to turn away from the worldly methods it has come to embrace, and to recover the Biblical doctrines of the Reformation.
Five Sola's of the Reformation
The Reformation was a great spiritual revival and recovery of key elements for the life the Church and the Christian. Many truths were recovered that countered the problems that has and will always weaken and plagued the church if we do not affirm these great central truths. These truths are summarize in what has come to be known as the Five Sola's of the Reformation. They are as follows:
Sola Scriptura: Scripture Alone is the Final authority for Faith and Practice. 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
Sola Christus: Salvation is in Christ Alone. 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
Sola Gratia: Salvation is by Sovereign Grace Alone. Ephesians 1:5-6 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.
Sola Fide: Salvation is by Faith Alone. Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. Galatians 2:16 "knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
Sola Deo Gloria: To God Alone be the Glory for everything Romans 11:36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Together for the Gospel
Affirmations & Denials
We are brothers in Christ united in one great cause – to stand together for the Gospel. We are convinced that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been misrepresented, misunderstood, and marginalized in many churches and among many who claim the name of Christ. Compromise of the Gospel has led to the preaching of false gospels, the seduction of many minds and movements, and the weakening of the church's Gospel witness.
The Mission & Vision of Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
The mission of The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is to set forth the teachings of the Bible about the complementary differences between men and women, created equally in the image of God, because these teachings are essential for obedience to Scripture and for the health of the family and the church.
The vision of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is to see the vast majority of evangelical homes, churches, academic institutions, and other ministries adopt the principles of the Danvers Statement as a part of their personal convictions and doctrinal confessions and apply them in consistent, heart-felt practice.
