What is the Gospel?
The message at the heart of Christianity is simple yet so profound. It is the message of Jesus Christ our Lord who came to earth as a real human being to suffer and die so that we might have eternal life in Him. He was crucified and resurrected for us, so that we could be saved and secured forever, through his blood that he freely shed for us! And now we live by faith in Him, for Him, to worship and glorify Him.
About our Church
Cornerstone One of the visuals the Bible gives for Jesus is that He is our cornerstone. In Bible times, this is code for the foundation, or the stone all the other stones in a house would have ultimately leaned upon. It was the one without whom all the other stones would have sagged and crumbled and been useless without. “The Church” does not refer to a literal building, then, but a different kind of structure made of people leaning upon Jesus Christ – a dwelling place of the Holy Spirit.
United Nothing to do with the United Church of Canada, but everything to do with the meaning of the word “united”. The URC is a federation of churches sprinkled throughout North America and the world, and our faith in Jesus Christ, as well as our subscription to our doctrinal beliefs unites us. While we would like to say we always have perfect unity and harmony, we are human and faulty and occasionally have trouble seeing eye to eye. Yet it still a wonderful ideal we strive for, until the day the Lord Jesus Christ returns.
Reformed This word has many meanings, but in basic terms it means that we were “RE-FORMED” by Jesus Christ and the Word of God, both as a church and as individuals. We are also excited about Reformed Theology, which you will learn as you listen to Biblical Preaching!
Church We are a group of people who belong to our Savior Jesus Christ, and love to worship Him together! We are also a family, which means we help each other, occasionally offend each other, care about one another, forgive one another, encourage one another and love one another fervently.
Great, I’d like to come to church, but what should I wear?
We’re just happy you’re coming, but if you’re hoping to blend in a little, business-casual is typical. Please join us in our worship services on Sundays at 10 AM and 4 PM. We worship at 180 Waterloo Street, London, ON (corner of Grey and Waterloo)
