Frequently Asked Questions

What is unique about Christ Reformed Baptist Fellowship?

We are unique in biblical polity. We practice the same polity as found in the New Testament; an elder-led congregational-ruled polity:   /about-us/our-leadership

We are unique in intentional disciple-making; providing interesting and transforming courses throughout the year:  /connect/life-courses

We are unique in that we stress biblical church membership; we love each other enough to encourage and hold each other accountable.  See: /connect/becoming-a-member and /membership-classes-and-booklet

We are unique in being family-integrated; intentionally combining age groups in both times of fellowship and discipleship so that the older generations can model Christian discipleship to the younger generations.

We are unique in being intentionally relational; purposefully growing one another into the image of Christ:  /connect/family-groups

We are unique in that we are a confessional church. While we hold that the Scripture is our only authority for Faith and practice, (sola scriptura), we hold that our confession, the capstone of all Baptist confessions, the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689, is faithful to the teaching of the Bible, and therefore, we use our confession as a guide for our official doctrinal positions of our church. For more information, see /about-us/what-we-believe

We are unique in that like our Baptist and Puritan forefathers, we apply sola scriptura  (scripture alone) to our worship, and therefore, we follow the regulative principle of worship (corporate worship is to be founded only on specific directions of Scripture): /connect/worship

We are unique in that we ground our children and youth in the Faith by teaching them a  catechism:  /connect/childrens-ministry

We are unique by being a Reformed Baptist church.

What is a Reformed Baptist Church?

A reformed Baptist church is a church that is part of a restorative movement returning to the biblical doctrine and practices of the New Testament and the first Baptists in England and America.   It is not a movement to create anything new, but instead a return to our Baptist roots grounded in the Scripture and reflected in the Protestant Reformation.

See /about-us/what-is-a-reformed-baptist-church for more information.

Are you part of a denomination?

Yes.  We are a Southern Baptist Church.  In fact, we hold to the same confession and have the same polity as the original 243 messengers and their churches who established the SBC in 1845.

Although it is not a denomination, we are also a part of the G3 Network of Churches, a like-minded network of Baptist churches who hold to the Second London Confession of 1689 and associate together for literature, doctrinal, and mission causes.
