  • Marriage, Divorce, and Children

    Marriage, Divorce, and Children

    "Near the close of the old dispensation, the prophet Malachi rebuked apostatizing Israel for their despising of marriage. Jehovah told Israel that He would no longer receive any offering from their hand. Why? "Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant" (2:14). Then the prophet adds, "And did not he make [husband and wife] one?... And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed" (v. 15). And he concludes, "the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away" (v. 16). Read More

    400 Years of Biblical Truth: Saving Faith is God's Gracious Gift Too

    Canons of Dordt - Head III/IV, Art. 14 - "Faith is therefore to be considered as the gift of God, not on account of its being offered by God to man, to be accepted or rejected at his pleasure; but because it is in reality conferred, breathed, and infused into him; or even because God bestows the power or ability to believe, and then expects that man should by the exercise of his own free will, consent to the terms of that salvation, and actually believe in Christ; but because he who works in man both to will and to do, and indeed all things in all, produces both the will to believe, and the act of believing also."

    God's Word Proclaimed: Blessed Are the Merciful

    "So, when God has mercy upon us, He also gives us to be merciful. We possess, then, pity one toward another as we see each other in our misery of sin and we desire to help one another. You see, mercy is not a callous, cruel, hard, cold thing. A child of God has experienced the tender compassions of God, and then, as a result, his heart goes out in love and pity toward others. ...God makes His child merciful. That is, the child of God, knowing his own burden of sin and having experienced the pity and the love of God, now also is filled with pity toward others. As God saw us in the misery of our sins and had pity, so now we also desire to show that mercy one toward another." 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).
