Hope PRC (Grand Rapids, MI) Sponsoring Special Lecture - November 11, 2016

Hope PRC RWC 2016 Lecture DJE

The entire Reformed community, indeed all Protestants, in Western Michigan are cordially invited to attend a special lecture on the evening of November 11, 2016.

The subject of the lecture will be a biblical topic of the greatest importance and urgency for all confessing Christians and their children: “The Necessity of Membership in a True Church of Jesus Christ.” Not that such membership is preferable, but that it is necessary. Not membership in some church or other, perhaps a church that is active in the community, or a church with a friendly minister, but membership in a true church.

The importance and urgency of the topic are, according to Article 28 of the Reformed creed, the Belgic Confession, that “out of it [a true church] there is no salvation.”

What makes this topic especially urgent in our day is the widespread ignorance of this truth and practice, and even powerful attack on this truth and practice, within Protestantism, evangelicalism, and even Reformed Christianity. Confessing Christians make their decision regarding church membership regardless that the church they choose obviously lacks the marks of the true church. Confessing Christians contentedly remain members of churches that plainly fall away from Jesus Christ, or show themselves apostate. And then there are such unbiblical movements as the “home church movement,” which openly despise the instituted church of Jesus Christ.

All Reformed Christians confess in Article 28 of their creed, the Belgic Confession of Faith, that “all men are in duty bound to join and unite themselves with [a true church].”

The speaker will be the Rev. Prof. David J. Engelsma, minister of the gospel and retired professor of theology in the Protestant Reformed Churches in America.

The lecture will be held at Hope Protestant Reformed Church, 1580 Ferndale Ave SW, Grand Rapids MI, 49534.

The lecture begins at 7:30PM.

After the speech, the audience will have opportunity to ask questions of the speaker, which he will answer publicly.
