For by grace ye are saved through faith; and not that of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2.8-9)

 

 

 

 

 

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4.24)

 

 

 

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderul, Counsellor, The might God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perfrom this. (Isaiah 9.6-7)

 

Our Beliefs

 

Salvation

We at Liberty and Grace Reformed Church believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which includes both the bad news that man is dead in trespasses and sin, and therefore unable to attain spiritual life on his own; and the good news that God is able to save by grace (Eph. 2.5) even the chief of sinners by the working of the Holy Spirit in his heart, regenerating and causing him to be born again (John 3.3, 5). Faith in Jesus Christ alone, which is the gift of God, is necessary for salvation and, as "God commandeth all men every where to repent" (Acts 17.30), so Jesus Christ, who died for sinners, "is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him" (Heb. 7.25).

 

Worship

We believe in the purity of worship ordained, commanded and prescribed by God himself, which Scripture contrasts with man-made "will-worship" (Col. 2.23). God has appointed the Lord's Day as the only holy day to be kept regularly by all, and he has ordained that he will be worshiped daily by individuals and families. Our church believes in the primacy of God's Word preached and read in public worship, practices exclusive a cappella psalm singing, and celebrates the Lord's Supper quarterly.

 

Government

We believe in Presbyterian church government jure divino. Although we are at this time independent, it is our aim to seek and promote godly ecclesiastical affiliation within a presbytery. Constitutionally, we hold to the original 1646 Westminster Confession of Faith, the 1645 Westminster Directory for the Public Worship of God, and the original Westminster Shorter and Larger Catechisms.
