Infant Baptism? YES! by Michael Brown & Dennis Johnson

Infant Baptism is a very interesting subject for maturing believers seeking to know more about God’s Covenant relationship with His people. To help those looking for quality material I have pasted in two articles with which I agree and I believe agree with the ARP Standards as well as the Westminster Confessions of Faith. The articles…

Inerrancy? YES!

Reverend Locke preached a sermon March 13th called ARP Inerrancy: Is It a Bible Doctrine? Many denominations start on a slippery slope toward liberalism by not holding to a high view of scripture. The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church has taken steps to make sure that doesn’t happen to our churches. The most in depth explanation…

A Dwelling Place for God — Ephesians 2:11-22 Apostle's Creed

The Apostle’s Creed defines a Christian as someone who believes in God the Father Almighty, in Jesus Christ the Son, in the Holy Spirit and in the holy catholic Church. If we wish to claim the Christian label then we must believe in the Holy catholic Church. To not believe in this essential doctrine is to morph the Biblical faith into a new religious group undeserving the name Christian.

The word catholic is Old Elizabethan English and it means universal. We are not claiming to believe in the Holy Roman Catholic Empire, led by the Pope and headquartered inside the Vatican. We believe in one holy universal church. One catholic church.

All believers are members in this one global people of God that Jesus leads and outside of this Church there is no salvation. Gentiles, Jews, Armenians, Turks, Arabs and all others are brought near by the shed blood of Jesus on the cross. We are made equal brothers and sisters in the family of God. The Jewish laws are abolished. The Spirit has brought all humanity together in Christ.

So why do so many self proclaimed Christians never practically join the local church?

What does Reformed mean?

Our minister preaches and explains the Gospel within a Reformed and Presbyterian theological context. Reverend Locke’s understanding of the Bible is best understood through the word: MONERGISM. How is the Gospel understood from a Monergistic point of view and why does it matter? Monergism: In regeneration, the Holy Spirit unites us to Christ independent of any cooperation from…

Power from On High — Isaiah 63:7-14

Do we know when the Spirit of God is missing?

Jesus said in Matthew 16:18, I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. The prophet Zechariah assures Zerubbabel that the kingdom of God and His church would be built. No mountain would stand in the way. Zechariah 4:6 Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.

The pouring out of God’s Spirit is the only way to build the Lord’s eternal Kingdom. Isaiah 44:4-5 I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground. I will pour My Spirit upon your children, and My blessing upon your offspring.

It is the outpouring of the Spirit that brings us to repentance and renewed obedience and fellowship with the Father. How can only 25% of American Christians believe in the reality of the Holy Spirit? I will try to answer that in a minute. Let me continue with the doctrine from the Old Testament . . .
