Everyone's Duty to Join the True Church

More and more, so it seems, people are less than impressed with the necessity of being joined to the true Church.  Calvin writes in his Institutes, “. . . it is always fatally dangerous to be separated from the Church” (IV, i, 4).  Where one’s membership is placed is of crucial importance and has eternal consequences.  Click here to read Prof. R. Decker’s explanation of Belgic Confession Article 28 and the serious implications that church membership has for our lives.

This month’s theme for the app content is “The Necessity of Membership within a True Church of Jesus Christ” in preparation for a free public lecture event held by Hope Protestant Reformed Church on November 11, 2016.  Professor David Engelsma will speak on this topic, answering such questions as “Is membership in a church really necessary?’ and “What qualities should I seek for in a church home?”  To learn more, click here to visit Hope’s website for the event.
