The Way to Heaven – by John Philips (1585-1663)


There is no salvation outside the church. Philips explains why this is so important, and every Christian should understand why God has ordained the specific means of salvation through the church in order to bring in his elect through his one and Only Son. A masterful work following the teaching of the bible and the doctrines around ecclesiology.

John Philips (or Phillips) (1585-1663) was a staunch reformed puritan during the era of the Westminster Assembly.

This work by Philips covers the important topic of the nature of the church. Philips explains that salvation is only found in the Church. He demonstrates what the Church is; by what means men are added to the Church; the Author, or Efficient cause of this addition; the time and continuance of that work; and the happiness of those that are added to the Church. His text comes from Acts 2:47, “And the Lord added to the Church daily such as should be saved.” In this treatise he covers three branches to define the church, and then explains how the church ministers the salvation of God through Jesus Christ by the ministry of the Word, faith and baptism. This is an excellent work which is also a polemic against the Roman Catholic Church as well as heretical sects.
