To all who are weary and need rest, to all who mourn and long for comfort, to all who feel worthless and wonder if God cares, to all who fail and desire strength, to all who sin and need a Savior, this church opens wide her doors with a welcome from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Defender of the guilty, the Justifier of the inexcusable, the Victorious all conquering Lamb, the Friend of sinners. Welcome!
WHO WE ARE
We are flawed sinners with a perfect Savior, very much encouraged as we see evidences of God’s grace among us as He forms a people for His Name; a kingdom minded, Christ exalting, multi-generational community of faith.
EVANGELICAL AND REFORMED
Although King’s Church may be considered a young Church, it is true to say that what we believe is not in any way new. We stand in a long line of Churches as well as godly men and women who, through the centuries, have held to the historic creeds and confessions of the Church (these being short, precise, formal summaries of essential or important Biblical doctrines). We affirm the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed, as well as the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 (with modifications).
Being Evangelical basically means two things: (1) we believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and infallible word of God and is therefore our final authority in all matters of life and doctrine and (2) we believe that all people are sinners and need to be saved from the wrath of God by responding in repentance and faith to the gospel (the evangel) of our Lord Jesus Christ. With Scripture alone as our sure foundation, we affirm that justification is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone.
We are also Reformed in our theology. This means that we embrace the Biblical truths of the Gospel recaptured at the time of the Protestant Reformation and exult in the sovereignty of God over all things. We therefore place the emphasis on the activity of God and the glory of God in the salvation of sinners. Indeed, salvation is an entirely Trinitarian work, accomplished by the Father’s electing choice of a people to save, the Son’s redeeming work in living, dying and rising for them, and the Holy Spirit’s work in applying redemption to this same people. Salvation is of the Lord from start to finish, which is why all the glory goes to Him.
In His discourse with the woman of Samaria, the Lord Jesus said: “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” – John 4:23,24. The phrase “in spirit and truth” refers to two essential elements of true worship, both related to each other – purity of devotion and purity of doctrine.
Here at King’s Church we stand in the tradition of Reformation faith and practice. We believe true worship is Biblically informed, unashamedly Trinitarian, centered on the Person and work of Christ and saturated in gospel truth.
We see worship as an act of offering sacrifice and praise to God – our priority being to worship Him according to how He commands, not according to what may be popular in a particular culture in a particular time. Central to our worship is the proclamation of the Word of God by way of verse by verse Biblical exposition.
We gather with God’s people each Lord’s Day to exult in God’s truth, thrill over His mercies and graces, and worship His magnificence out loud – visibly, publicly, together. As we do, our desire is to Read the Word, Preach the Word, Pray the Word, Sing the Word and See the Word (in the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper).
CURRENT PREACHING SERIES
In our Sunday morning worship service, we are currently preaching verse by verse through the Gospel of John. In the 20th chapter we are told John’s purpose in writing:
“Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.” – John 20:30,31 (NASB)
At our Wednesday evening Bible studies, we are teaching through the Old Testament book of Psalms.
King’s Church is a member church in FIRE (Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals) – a unifying network for independent Reformed (and Reforming) baptistic churches to experience mutual edification, fellowship, cooperation and prayerful support in ministries and missions.
