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

  • Conviction for Christian Education

    “Christian schools must arise out of conviction. That conviction is this: that it is the calling of parents to educate their children according to what the parents believe. In Genesis 18:19, God’s Word concerning Abraham was this: For I know him, that he will instruct or train his children in the commandments of the Lord. The conviction for Christian education is that the parent is called of God to train his child in every area of life. And the goal of this training is to equip our children to live as children of God to the glory of God in this world. It is the calling of a parent to do that." ~Carl Haak Read More

    'My Times are in Thy hand' (Psa. 31:15): “Yes, my 'times' of tarrying and my 'times' of journeying; my 'times' of prosperity and my 'times' of adversity; my 'times' of fellowship with the saints and my 'times' of isolation and loneliness; each and all are ordered by the God. It is blessed to know this, and more blessed still when the heart is permitted to rest thereon. A.W.Pink, "The Life of David" Read More
  • "My whole life is covenant life."

    "As a believer, my whole life is covenant life. God is my God, not only on the Sabbath, but also through the week; not only in my worship, but also in my work; not only in my devotions, but also in my marriage and family; not only as regards my church life, but also with regard to my behavior to the State, to my employer, and to my neighbor. The friendship of God lays claim to everything, ...and shows itself everywhere." ~David Engelsma 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).
