The people who tell you "Reformed Is Not Enough" almost never know what they're talking about. First try actually being Reformed for a week before you start telling people to move on.
People who tell you that "Reformed Is Not Enough" and who corrupt the holy gospel are not qualified to criticize the Reformed faith. They don't even get the gospel right.
How hard is to to get the gospel right? It's not that complex: salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. The ground of justification is the imputed righteousness of Christ, received through faith alone.
Christ came for us, he obeyed for us, he suffered for us, he died for us, he was raised for us, ascended for us, he mediates for us. He will return for us.

That's it. It's not complicated.
BTW, salvation by grace and cooperation with grace is not good news. It's bad news for sin-wrecked (yes, that's the word I want) sinners. We're dead in sins and trespasses. Even in a state of grace our best works are corrupted with sin.
Good works are necessary as fruit and evidence. Full stop.
Saying "salvation" doesn't somehow turn good works into more than fruit and evidence (e.g., into the instrument of an imaginary final salvation through works).
In by baptism, stay in by cooperation with grace is not good news.
Initial justification sola gratia, sola fide (on the basis of Xp's imputed righteousness), and "final salvation through works" is not good news.
In salvation (justification, sanctification, glorification) faith is not faithfulness. It's not "covenant loyalty." It's not "covenant allegiance." It's not "doing your part of the covenant."
Yes, there are two parts of the covenant of grace: God's grace and our response but the antecedent condition of salvation is Christ's work for us and we obey in union with Christ, in grace, as a *consequence* of grace.
We obey *because* we have been saved and are being saved and shall be saved not *in order* to be saved.
