• WHAT IS THE GOSPEL

    What Is the Gospel? There is no greater message to be heard than that which we call the Gospel. But as important as that is, it is often given to massive distortions or over simplifications. People think they’re preaching the Gospel to you when they tell you, ‘you can have a purpose to your life’, or […]

    The Gospel is For All

    Maybe you’ve concluded that Christianity simply isn’t for people like you. You know who had every reason to think that the gospel was not for him? The Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8. He could have said to Phillip, “I hear this good news, but look, I’m not from Jerusalem. I just got back from there. Read More
  • HOW SHOULD WE THEN WORSHIP?

    How Should We Then Worship?   Three-quarters of the way through the twentieth century, Francis A. Schaeffer asked the question, “How should we then live?” His book of the same name answered the questions raised by the radical shift in our culture from modernity to post-modernity. The question that we face in our generation is closely […]

    The Reformed Church

    The Reformed Church in the United States (RCUS) is a communion of Christian churches in the Reformed tradition. We stand on the great Reformation principles of Scripture alone, Christ alone, Grace alone, Faith alone, and Glory to God alone. Established in the 1700s and reorganized in the 1930s, today we seek to proclaim the truth Read More
  • THE LAW & THE GOSPEL

    In order to recover the sufficiency of Scripture we must once again learn to distinguish the Law and the Gospel as the “two words” of Scripture. For the Reformers, it was not enough to believe in inerrancy. Since Rome also had a high view of Scripture in theory, the Reformers were not criticizing the church […]

  • The Sweetness of Forgiveness

    The Sweetness of Forgiveness

    “The forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace” (Ephesians 1:7). Could there be a sweeter word in any language than that word “forgiveness” when it sounds in a guilty sinner’s ear, like the joyful notes of liberation to the captive Israelite? Blessed, forever blessed, be the dear star of pardon that Read More
  • TRUE REPENTANCE

    “From that time on Jesus began to preach, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near’” (v. 17). - Matthew 4:12-22 Both Matthew and Mark record that Jesus’ first sermons were a summons to repentance. The Greek word for repentance is metanoia, which comes from two Greek words, meta and nous. Meta means “after” or “beyond,” and nous means mind. Literally, a metanoia is an […]

Bible Study on Comfort

• August 20, 2014

What is your only comfort in life and in death? It is not a pointless question.  It is the basic question that everyone wrestles with in one way or another.  People try all sorts of answers until they run out things to try, and as we have seen lately, when no answer can be found […]

LOVING GOD’S LAW by Pastor Scott Henry

• March 23, 2014

“And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage” (Exodus 20:1-2). There’s nothing more practical for us to recover in our day than a biblical understanding of love and righteousness. And the Law of God […]

LOOK TO CHRIST, NOT TO SELF By C. H. Spurgeon

• March 23, 2014

“It is ever the Holy Spirit’s work to turn our eyes away from self to Jesus; but Satan’s work is just the opposite of this, for he is constantly trying to make us regard ourselves instead of Christ. He insinuates, ‘Your sins are too great for pardon; you have no faith; you do not repent […]

HOW TO BECOME A STRONG CHRISTIAN by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

• March 7, 2014

We have to spend time in understanding and studying…[the] great doctrines of the Christian faith. It is only as we do so that we shall become strong, and become men, and be able to take the stronger meat, and so grow, and be powerful and able to teach others. There is no doubt but that […]

THE ONLY WAY by Pastor Scott Henry

• March 7, 2014

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). When it comes to religion, most people in our society think there are many roads leading to heaven. They say if a person is sincere and lives a moral life then […]

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE MOVIE, SON OF GOD? by Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr.

• March 5, 2014

zv7qrnb MAKING IMAGES Given that I haven’t seen it, one might think I hadn’t given it much thought. But I have. I could here take a stab at solving the immediate second commandment problem. Some argue that on its face, any movie that depicts Jesus is of necessity a violation of the second commandment which […]

RED LETTER NONSENSE by Pastor Kevin DeYoung

• March 3, 2014

Just as crucially, if all Scripture is breathed out by God, then there is a unity to be found across the pages of the Bible. Without minimizing the differences of genre and human au­thorship, we should nevertheless approach the Bible expect­ing theological distinctives and apparent discrepancies to be fully reconcilable.   The unity of Scripture […]

PATIENT IN TRIBULATION by Pastor Scott Henry

• February 18, 2014

“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer…” (Romans 12:12). Why is life filled with so many problems? The first reason is simple … sin! Sin is the reason for the tribulation and trials in our lives. Before Adam fell into sin there was no sickness, disease, death, or trouble. Tribulation immediately began […]

CONFESS YOUR SINS by C.H. Spurgeon

• February 18, 2014

It is quite certain that those whom Christ has washed in His precious blood need not make a confession of sin as culprits or criminals before God the Judge, because Christ has forever taken away all their sins in a legal sense, so that they no longer stand where they can be condemned, but are […]

WHAT THE DEVIL CARES ABOUT by Rev. Matt Powell

• February 17, 2014

The devil wants you in hell. He wants to destroy you. That is his whole mission in life. He stalks about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. The devil doesn’t care about abortion, or gay marriage, or evolution. Believing in the Biblical teaching on any of those doctrines will not save you. […]
