Who We Are

This branch of Christ's Church in the Panhandle seeks to be faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission.


We Love to Worship

We love to worship because we love Jesus.  Our praise of Christ is regulated by his Word.  Christian worship is to be according to divine rule: “God is a spirit, and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)  God alone is Lord of the conscience.  We enjoy freedom from the restraints of human innovation and man-made traditions. Worship is to include only those elements which God has commanded: the reading, preaching, singing, and praying of the Word. Here is a sample worship bulletin.

 

We Love the Truth

We love the Truth because we love Jesus. Christ himself said, “To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth.” (John 18:37) We savor his words. Christians are to build their lives on his teachings. “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24)  We believe the most accurate explanation of his truth is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms. These statements of faith were crafted during the 1640’s, and their doctrines ring as true now as they did then.  Theology matters. As Jesus’ followers we are to “hold fast the form of sound words.” (2 Timothy 1:13)  Our faithfulness as a congregation can only be measured by our love for the truth as it is in Jesus.


We Love the Church

We love the church because we love Jesus. He is the sole King and Head of the Church.  “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” (Matthew 28:18) “Yet I have set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.” (Psalm 2:6)“And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church” (Ephesians 1:22) “And he is the head of the body, the church” (Colossians 1:18) Christ our King has appointed how the church should be governed. As our head, Jesus gives us life.  We are one with him, we abide in him, and his life is our life.  He feeds us by his Holy Spirit, and brings vital spiritual energy to his body, the church. Because we delight in Jesus, we delight to join Christ's Church. 

We Are Reformed

We are “Reformed” in our faith and practice, which simply means that our church is part of the fruit of the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. Christ's Church is nurtured by deep, historical roots. The Reformation was a powerful force that swept across Europe under the leadership of men like Martin Luther, John Calvin, and John Knox. Driven by a passion for the Word of God, the Reformation was a recovery of five Scriptural principles:

  1. Soli Deo Gloria (God’s Glory Alone)—We live for God’s glory. All creation exists for His glory and praise.
  2. Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone)—Scripture is the Word of God, and is the ultimate source of authority in the Church. Our consciences are not bound to the words of men, but to the Word of God.
  3. Sola Gratia (Grace Alone)—Scripture teaches that people are saved not by what they do, but by what God has done for them in the person and work of His Son, Christ Jesus. It is by grace that we have been saved, through faith. (Ephesians 2:8)
  4. Sola Fide (Faith Alone)—God is the one who saves sinners, and He saves them by giving them the ability to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ.
  5. Sola Christos (Christ Alone)—Christ alone is the Savior of sinners. We rely on His blood and His obedience to save us for eternal life.

This is the message that turned the world upside down. We boldly and confidently proclaim this message of freedom and liberty to sinners because this is how God lifts people out of darkness into light. This message has been preached with zeal throughout history, and we trust that this Gospel is still God’s way of saving people.
