Who are we? We are ordinary people of various ages and interests all pursuing a deeper connection to Christ Jesus and his work in our world. What is our Mission? We are aiming to connect the people of Delaware and Otsego Counties to the love of Christ, welcoming them to the worship of God, the proclamation of the Good News about Jesus, sound teaching from the Bible, and a caring, prayerful community.
Reformed? Presbyterian? We are a congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, which agrees with the ancient Christian faith expressed in the Apostles', Nicene, Athanasian, and Chalcedonian creeds. We subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms. The basis for all we do, believe, and teach is the Bible. Reformed refers to our high commitment to the Bible, and to its good news that we are saved only because of God's grace in Christ received by faith. Presbyterian refers to our church governance by a plurality of elders.
What can you expect when you visit? Expect a warm welcome. Our hour of worship looks like this: Portions of the Bible are read and explained in their relevance to life; we sing other portions of Scripture meant to be sung in praise to God (the Psalms); we pray for each other's needs, our world, and our community, and we give thanks to God for his many good gifts. You'll also see God's goodness displayed in Baptism and the Lord's Supper. If it all seems strange or foreign to you, don't worry: we're all just learning how to worship God, but there is great blessing as we do. We hope you'll visit!
