Reformed News Asia - January 2016 (#25)

From our sister church in Singapore - Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church - comes the latest issue of "REFORMED NEWS ASIA."

Issue 25 - January 2016
Pamphlets
We print pamphlets written by our members and those from other Reformed churches of like-minded faith. They include a wide range of topics from doctrines to church history and practical Christian living. These pamphlets serve to promote knowledge of the true God as expressed in the Reformed faith.
NEW Pamphlet!
(Part 3 of a 3-part series on articles on the Heidelberg Catechism)

The Heidelberg Catechism - A Covenantal Confession
By Prof Russell Dykstra

"One of the distinct and distinguishing doctrines of Reformed theology is the truth of God's everlasting covenant of grace." The intent of this article is to show that the Heidelberg Catechism is a covenantal confession. The Catechism views the truth of God's Word through the lens of the covenant.

In this article, the contributions made by the authors of the catechism are also discussed. I hope you know who they are - Zacharias Ursinus and Caspar Olevianus. Both of them were covenant theologians.

The covenant theology behind the Heidelberg Catechism is unconditional. It is an unconditional friendship established by God with His chosen people in Christ. This is addressed in Q&A 74 regarding infant baptism.

Why do Reformed believers love the Heidelberg Catechism? Because it breathes the doctrine of the covenant. God's unconditional, eternal covenant of grace with believers and their seed.

Open Sunday 2016
As per previous years, CERC began the first Sunday of the year with an "Open Sunday" to mark the start of another year of Catechism Instruction and Sunday school. Highlights included an exhortation by Elder Wong, presentations by various teachers and song items by the children.
Song presentation by students in the Primary school classes.
 
Baptism and Confession of Faith
In the past 2 months, we witnessed the Baptism of a youth and the Confession of Faith of a regular visitor. When asked these questions, what is our answer?

1. Do you acknowledge the doctrine contained in the Old and New Testaments and in the Articles of the Christian faith and taught here in this Christian church to be the true and complete doctrine of salvation?

2. Have you resolved by the grace of God to adhere to this doctrine; to reject all heresies repugnant thereto; and to lead a new, godly life?

3. Will you submit to church government, and in case you should become delinquent (which may God graciously forbid), to church discipline?
