As human beings, our greatest problem is that we stand under God’s just condemnation. We are not “basically good,” but our “hearts are deceitful above all things, and desperately sick.” (Jeremiah 17:9) God, however, has made peace between Himself and us through the work of Jesus Christ! This peace is declared in Romans 5:1 “we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” If you have never known this peace with God, please email the pastor here.
As a local communion of the church of Jesus Christ, we are “eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:3) Therefore, we possess a spiritual unity in Christ (see Romans 6:5) and in the teachings of the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We pray that God would use our local communion to be a part of a modern reformation in the Christian church. We believe that this reformation, like the protestant reformation of the 16th century, will take place when the church rediscovers the gospel that sinners are saved by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone to the glory of God alone. This reformation can only take place when the church is reformed by the Word of God alone.
We assemble as the people of God for the purpose of worship, study, prayer, fellowship, and service. We are a community in the world, but not of it.
Peace United Reformed Church proclaims to sinners reconciliation to God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ and establishes them in their discipleship through the Holy Spirit-empowered means of grace.
