The Bible tells of a pivotal moment. Humanity was going from bad to worse; God took action. God blessed Abraham (no standout) in order to bless all peoples through him (Genesis 12.1-3). This story points to what we’re about at RTC.
God created us “to glorify God and enjoy him forever.” Foolishly, and to a person, we seek fulfillment in other sources. This sin separates us from God and unleashes countless miseries. On our own, we cannot undo this damage.
Through the life, death, and resurrection of his son, Jesus Christ, God has acted to bring sinners home to himself. God graciously calls us to trust in Jesus for his forgiveness and new life in the power of the Holy Spirit. When we do, God welcomes us into his forever family, the church.
Our church’s aim is to be disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus – for God’s glory! Or, to use the words of the Bible text mentioned above, to grow in receiving God’s blessing and in blessing others.
We are affiliated with the Christian Reformed Church in North America, a family of churches in the U.S. and Canada. Our roots are in the Protestant branch of the historic Christian Church which has existed for thousands of years and today spans the globe. The Bible is our guide for belief and living. We aim to be “re-formed” according to God’s Word, and by the power of God’s Spirit.
