Where are we?
Our church meets in a house remodeled for use as a church.
510 N. Cedar, Nevada, MO
just north of the square. We are on Cedar Street
on the east side.
A House Set Apart
We meet in a house that has been repurposed and dedicated for the church and the ministry of Christ in Nevada.
Room for Worship
This is a humble place for the sincere contemplation of Christ through the ministry of the Word. Christ must be preached.
A church is distinguished by the ministry of the Word and the fellowship of the saints (both!). We have places inside and outside for children and adults alike to be together in fellowship.
The Meal We Eat
We feast on Christ, and this is our manna. The church has always been marked by the ministry of the Word and table fellowship. We share a meal together every Sunday after worship. We also celebrate communion in the context of this meal.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Our pastors confess what is confessed in the ABSTRACT OF PRINCIPLES, 1858.
We Believe in the Trinity, in the physical, historical, factual and real bodily resurrection of Jesus, in the inerrancy of Scripture, in the atoning work of Christ on the cross, in the necessity of faith in Christ and repentance from dead works, in the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in Christians, in the future return of Christ and the future physical bodily resurrection of both the wicked and the righteous (the one for unending conscious punishment and the other for life everlasting in the new heavens and earth).
We hold to the Five Solas (where sola means “alone”). These solas were formulated during the Protestant Reformation, and are as follows:
- Solus Christus (Christ alone)
- Sola Gratia (Grace alone)
- Sola Fide (Faith alone)
- Soli Deo Gloria (Glory to God alone)
- Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone)
The Chief End of Man is to Glorify God by Enjoying Him Forever
Why Christ Reformed Church?
Everything we may say about Jesus is Good News (it is Gospel). Everything about him is excellent. Jesus is God–just as Thomas said when he declared to Jesus, “My Lord and my God” (John 20:28)–and so all of our talk about God is rooted and grounded in his incarnation. Even the wrath of God at[…]
Our desire is to follow the ramifications of Romans 9 (even against the sensibilities of many theological systems). For it is there, in Romans 9 and other places, that we learn of God’s all-encompassing sovereignty, “For he says to Moses, ‘I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on[…]
Jesus said, “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me” (John 5:39).
We exist under the conviction that Jesus is the sum and substance of all things (Col 1:15-16), and our sermons are to reflect this. A Christian sermon explains Jesus; it starts with Jesus, it is filled with Jesus, and has Jesus as the chief meaning. The Christian sermon is the Christ-sermon, exalting and pointing to[…]
