Pastor Michael Brown
Welcome to our website!
If you are interested in discovering what Christ URC is all about, you will find this website helpful. In brief, Christ URC is a congregation of believers and their children who are united not by cultural practices, consumer preferences, or political parties, but by one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. We are a church committed to confessional, historic, Reformed Christianity. That means we are passionate about the gospel, which is the announcement of salvation by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, because of Christ alone.
We gather together each Lord’s Day (Sunday) to hear the message of Christ and Him crucified proclaimed in law and gospel. The Holy Spirit meets us on His terms, that is, though Word and Sacrament, in order to announce God’s promises and renew His covenant with us. Worship is more than listening, praying, singing, and receiving the Lord’s Supper. It is a spiritual feast spread before us so that our famished souls may be nourished. The gospel is not just for “getting saved,” it is for the Christian life. It is for our sanctification as much as it is for our justification. It is God’s ordained means for His covenant people so that they may be strengthened in faith, renewed in the mind, and continue to be sanctified as pilgrims in this present evil age.
If you are weary, lacking in assurance, burned out on Christianity, tired of moralistic therapy and drivel, long to hear some good news, want to learn some theology, and sick of irreverent worship that is more about you than God and his glory, well then, Christ URC may be just the people and place you are looking for. Come and see for yourself.
For the Gospel,
Pastor Mike Brown
