The Reformed Theology Source was created in the late 1990s in an effort to promote reformed theology
and to provide the Church with some helpful resources. In 2008, 'The Reformed Theology Source' morphed into a WordPress blog with ministry-related articles.
By 2014, however, new blog posts ceased to be added.
The intention with this
current iteration of 'The Reformed Theology Source' is to provide an online repository for Pastor Bryn's sermons, miscellaneous writings, and other reformed resources.
Since the content of this website will be somewhat static, you will be helped by visiting the 'Social' page, which points to Bryn's YouTube channel,
Instagram, GoodReads and other social media handles.

In July 2022, Pastor Bryn's first book was released -
Purposeful Pain: What Your Troubles Achieve.
This book is a capture of his teaching on the subject of pain and suffering while pastoring in Nassau, Bahamas (2010 to present).
What Is Reformed Theology?
The phrase "reformed theology" has a range of meanings and uses. It is easier to note the markings, or characteristics, of reformed theology than it is
to reduce it to a single definition. For example, the Ligonier Ministries
website defines reformed theology as "the systematic theology formulated by thinkers in the Reformed tradition during and after the Protestant
Reformation of the sixteenth century" and then goes on to assert, "Reformed theology is simply
Carl Trueman, noting the confessional character of reformed
theology, writes, "At a more technical level (reformed theology)
refers specifically to Protestant churches that hold as confessional norms the Three
Forms of Unity, the Westminster Standards, or (in the case of Reformed Baptists) the Second London Confession." On a more popular level, reformed
theology is associated with the acronym, TULIP
, and with the "5 Solas".
As important and as helpful
as TULIP and the Solas are, these do not sufficiently span all that is captured in the phrase, "reformed theology". A brief article written by
Joel Beeke and Paul Smalley helps to enlarge the coverage of reformed theology's characteristics under the heading:
