Like most names, the name
"Free Reformed Church of Mount Nasura"
We are a church. The word "church" comes from the Greek term kuriakos which means "belonging to the Lord.” With the name "church" we profess to be an assembly of believers who have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ, and who now belong, with body and soul, to our faithful Saviour.
Our church is "Reformed." The word "Reformed" means "brought back to the original form." During the Middle Ages the Church departed from the teaching of Holy Scripture. In the 1500's Christ graciously restored His Church to its original standard for faith and life, using the men of the "Great Reformation" – Martin Luther, John Calvin and others. By calling ourselves "Reformed" we indicate our desire to maintain the pure doctrine of God's Word and to live according to the Scriptures in all things.
Our church is "Free" Reformed. The word "free" speaks of our desire to remain free from the hierarchy of broader church assemblies, and free from false doctrines. We honour the position of the local body of elders (consistory) as the only church assembly which has received authority from Christ, and which answers to Christ alone. Moreover, just as God freed His people Israel from Egyptian slavery and brought them to the Promised Land, so too Christ has set us free from slavery to sin and brings us into the heavenly Promised Land.
Our beliefs are important to us, and simply, we believe everything in the Bible, since it is the Word of God. This means that we have great reverence for the reliability of the Bible, and we take great care with the explanation of it, ensuring that every personal though and feeling is submitted to it. We accept the Bible as the only rule of conduct for everyday life.
"I am not my own, but belong with body and soul,
both in life and in death, to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ."
Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 1
Our Mission Work
We are involved in mission projects in the Asia Pacific region. It is a great privilege to be involved in spreading God's Holy Word and the good news of salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you."Matthew 28:19, 20
