The first building on the site was constructed around 1654-1662, complete with stockade fence to protect the Dutch from marauding Indians, but the building seen today was completed in 1796.

For the Calvinist, “faith” is wrought in the heart by the effectual working of the Spirit of God who enlightens the mind, removes the blindness, opens the heart, grants an understanding and effectually calls the sinner to the obtaining of Jesus Christ. An unofficial motto of non-denominational Christian Churches is "We are not the only Christians, but are Christians only." Door het werk van Calvijn bekeerden veel Fransen zich in de 16e en 17e eeuw tot het calvinisme, maar de Franse koningen onderdrukten deze zogenoemde hugenoten hard.

The Church consists of Her interior soul, which is faith, hope, charity, grace etc (all invisible), and Her exterior, which is her members, preaching, Sacraments, sacrifices etc (all visible). Weber, by contrast, seems to conflate the two. No Arminian scholar would claim the beliefs as they are expressed in the chart you posted. Protestantism does not depreciate good works; but it denies their value as sources or conditions of justification, and insists on them as the necessary fruits of faith, and evidence of justification.

The Habsburgs, who ruled Spain, Austria, the Crown of Bohemia, Hungary, Slovene Lands, the Spanish Netherlands and much of Germany and Italy, were staunch defenders of the Roman Catholic Church. We believe a life with Christ is a life that will be nourished, a life that will be graceful, and a life that willbe shared with others. We do not rejoice at their disintegration, at their falling into religious indifference, or returning into political parties.

We also read from John 6 that many chose to reject Him of their own free will. They had to end religious strife so the 13 Colonies could ban together to fight the English Throne.

By common consent, the worship and tone of the Gathering were hailed as generally positive and uplifting. The singing of hymns, the use of an organ, fresh architectural styles, and new liturgies all came into being gradually, in the face of sometimes rather stiff opposition. S. population dropped to 48%, thus ending its status as religion of the majority for the first time.
