The Reformed Faith
We are Reformed. This means we strive to be faithful to the Word of God, the Bible, as understood by the Christian Church since the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century.
The Reformation was a movement of God where believers began to reject false teachings and unbiblical traditions and turned instead to the truth of Scripture. Our understanding of the Bible is summarized by the Belgic Confession of Faith, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort. We use the Authorized Version (KJV) of the Bible, believing it to be the most reliable and majestic version available today.
Our Church Family
Our church family is comprised of about 15 families who regularly attend Sunday services, half of whom are adults and half young people and children. Families travel anywhere from five minutes to an hour and a half to worship here. Our church family is a cross section of Northwest Arkansas with respect to employment, education, and lifestyle. There's always room for more.
Our church family is governed by a church council consisting of two elders, two deacons, and a pastor. We are part of the Heritage Reformed Congregations which is comprised of churches in five states and three Canadian provinces. We have fraternal relations with Christians and churches in other denominations as well.
We celebrate two sacraments, Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
Baptism is administered to adults who are new to the Christian faith and who profess faith in Jesus Christ and also to children of Christian parents.
The Reformed Church began in 1998 with two families meeting in their homes and eventually holding Sunday worship services in rented facilities. The group became an official outreach of the HRC in 1999 when we came under the oversight of the HRC congregation in Jordan, Ontario. We became an organized congregation with our own office bearers in the spring of 2010.
