A Modern Reformed Transformation

The Church is in dire need of a modern Reformed transformation!

A recent Pew Research Center study makes the need clear:

1. Atheists, agnostics, Jews, and Mormons score higher in religious knowledge and outperform Protestant Christians on questions about the core teachings and history of Christianity.

2. Those identifying themselves as “Christian” shrunk from 78% to 70% – a drop of 8% points in just seven years. Meanwhile, those calling themselves atheist, non-religious, or simply unaffiliated rose from 16% to almost 23%.

3. Almost 60% of our youth leave their churches as young adults – many joining the growing number of the so-called “nones,” those who profess no adherence to any faith whatsoever.

What can the Church do about it?

1. The Church needs to preach and teach the Gospel, period. Nothing added to it, or taken away from it.

2. The Church needs to preach and teach the Law of God, period. Nothing added to it, or taken away from it.

3. The Church needs to preach and teach repentance from sin and faith toward God through Jesus Christ.

4. The Church needs to preach and teach belief in the inerrancy, infallibility, and authority of God’s Word (the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments) – the Bible.

5. The Church needs to teach followers of Jesus Christ, their family and children what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and why it matters.

6. The Church needs to teach followers of Jesus Christ what the Christian faith is and why it is important to know and understand what you believe, and why.
7. The Church needs to preach and teach about the Person and work of the Holy Spirit, i.e., the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and the continuation of the gifts (manifestations) of the Holy Spirit for the equipping and building up of the Body of Christ.

8. The Church needs to preach and teach how God has arranged the Body of Christ (the local church); how He has prescribed its leadership and how the Body of Christ (the local church) functions.

At Symphony Ministries and Symphony Church we are seeking to do just that. It is time to make a sound biblical stand for God, Jesus Christ, the Gospel, and His Church.

Join us, help us, fellowship with us, support us. Soli Deo Gloria!
