Every Self-Respecting Calvinist...

loves the local church!
To the Church, under God, we owe it that we are ‘born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible (1 Pet 1:23),’ and from her we obtain the milk and the food by which we are afterwards nourished. Such are the reasons why the Church is called the mother of believers.
- John Calvin, Commentaries on the Epistles of Paul to the Galatians and Ephesians, 140-41

Have you called your mother lately?
