"Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory." Psalm 115:1

  • Religion, the Heart of Our Education

    Religion, the Heart of Our Education

    "...also today, the Lord our God is one Lord. Also today He is Lord over all—Lord not only in the church, but Lord also in the state, Lord also in social life, Lord in our home life, Lord in the life of our education. For that very reason, also today His precepts are valid for every sphere of that life. But if this is so, then it is also clear that the child must learn to see and honor those precepts, for all those spheres, and that. those precepts must form the very basis of his education. Religion must not be something that is added to our life, but it must be the heart of our life. Religion must not be something that is added to our education; but it must be the heart of our education, the precepts of the Lord must be the basis from which our entire education must proceed."

    400 Years of Biblical Truth: The Sly Tactics of J. Arminius

    "[Gomarus] showed how Arminius diligently taught his views, undermined the chief proofs of those who sought to establish sound doctrine, supported the proofs of the Jesuits and other enemies by which they opposed the doctrine of the Reformed church, inculcated in his disciples various doubts concerning the truth of the adopted doctrine, and presented the true doctrine as being on an equal footing with the opposing doctrine, in order thereafter to reject the former."

    God's Word Proclaimed: God's Rebuke of a Pouting Prophet

    " The application is, first of all, that we must see God’s determination that we acquiesce, that we submit to His will. It was God’s will to draw out of Nineveh His people. So He sent Jonah there and made Jonah’s preaching effective. And He spared Nineveh. He rejoiced over His mercy to bring out of darkness His own elect in Jesus Christ. For Jonah to go and preach in Nineveh certainly took much courage. But God is saying, “Jonah, it’s not just courage that I want. I want you to rejoice in that in which I rejoice. I want My pleasure to be your pleasure. You will be brought to the point where you rejoice when you see My pleasure done—whether that pleasure is something agreeable to you or not, whether My will cuts against your will or not. I call you to submit and to will My will.” Read More

Holding the Historic Christian Faith

The PRCA stand in the line of historic Christianity, believing and confessing the basic truths of the infallibly inspired Word of God.

This is "the faith... once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3), the "traditions" handed down to us by Jesus Christ through His apostles and prophets (Eph.2:202 Thess.2:15).

These basic Christian truths are summed in the great ecumenical creeds of the early Christian church including the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed.

These fundamental truths center on the Triune God and His great works: God the Father and our creation, God the Son and our redemption, and God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.

 

Maintaining the Glorious Reformed Faith

The PRCA also stand in the line of the great Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, when by God's might and mercy the church was re-formed according to the Word of God and restored to its pure doctrines and practices.

We openly and gladly embrace the Reformed Faith with its emphasis on the absolute sovereignty of God over all people, events, and things and on the absolute sovereignty of His grace in Jesus Christ, saving, preserving and glorifying the people He has chosen in Him before the foundation of the world.

This glorious gospel is summarized especially in the three great Reformed creeds we maintain: The Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dordt.

Embracing Our Own Protestant Reformed Distinctives

The PRCA also unashamedly embrace our own distinctive doctrines and practices, as the Lord has been pleased to lead us through controversy and battle for the truth in our history.

We declare and defend especially the truth of sovereign, particular grace overagainst the teachings of common grace and the truth of God's sovereign, unconditional covenant of grace with His elect people and their spiritual children overagainst the teaching of a conditional covenant and a general promise of salvation.

With firm conviction we believe these truths have important implications for the Christian life and for marriage and home life. Consequently, we also emphasize the godly, antithetical character of the Christian's life and the life-long bond of marriage.

Practicing Reverent, God-Centered Worship

According to the precepts of God's holy Word and the principles of our Reformed, Christian faith we practice corporate worship twice each Lord's Day (Sunday).

This obedient and joyful worship is simple, reverent, centered on God, and based on His Word. Our worship services focus on the Lord of glory Who is worthy to be thanked and praised (Rev.4:8-11), and we use His prescribed means to do this - singing, praying, giving of offerings, and the reading and hearing of His Word.

Especially do we stress the priority of the preaching of the holy gospel of Jesus Christ, with messages marked by careful and plain explanation of the holy Scriptures for all ages. Such preaching, we believe, is God's chief means of converting sinners and building up His church (Rom.10:17).
