We often get asked, "What is a Reformed church?"
There are many ways to answer this question, but we like to explain it like this:
In Genesis 1 and 2, we read that God created everything and it was good. When He created mankind, it was very good. Everything was formed exactly as it should be.
But in Genesis 3 we read that, through mankind, sin entered the world. Now everything is out of shape. Sin deforms everything.
We recognize that, because of our sin, we are no longer formed as we should be. The Bible tells us that our Christian life is to be shaped according to the likeness of Jesus. In order to regain our proper form, we must admit and turn from our sins and put our faith in the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus.
At the same time, the Bible also tells us that our daily walk is going to be marked by a series of spiritual battles (Ephesians 6:12). In these battles, our enemy, the devil, tries to form our lives according to his desires and not those of Jesus.
In a Reformed Church, we know that these battles take a toll and that we need to continually ask God to "Re-FORM" us according to His will. We do this individually through prayer and Bible study, and also corporately when we gather for study and worship.
Is your life bent out-of-shape by the world? Come and "Re-FORM" with us so that together we can be more like Jesus!
