But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1 Our deepest problem is our sin, for our lives no longer fulfill God’s purpose. We no longer honor him, we no longer love him with all that is in […]
Welcome to the Surrey Covenant Reformed Church!
We are a Surrey church because we are located at 17400 60th Avenue in Surrey, British Columbia (map).
We are a covenant church because we believe in a personal God who has entered into a relationship with us through Jesus Christ. He is the Vine and we are the branches. Just as a Vine reproduces its life in its branches so that they bear fruit, so Jesus Christ reproduces his death to the realm of sin and his wholehearted love to God and his neighbour in our lives when we are joined to him by faith.
We are a Reformed church because our church has its roots in the Great Reformation of the 16th century. When it concerns the person and work of Christ, we believe that Christ is God’s perfect response to us because he dealt with the problem of sin and death for us, as our representative, and instead of us, as our substitute. Moreover, we believe that Christ is also our perfect response to God because He perfectly kept the Ten Commandments for us, as our representative, and instead of us, as our substitute. Thus, we believe not only in the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ, but also in his substitutionary life.
We are a church because we are an assembly of believers who officially gather together for worship on Sundays in order to exercise our unity in Christ and mature in this unity. We are a hand and a foot to each other during the week because we want to exercise our unity in Christ and mature in this unity as well. Moreover, because we are God’s new creation in Christ, we believe we are called to set up signs of the coming kingdom of God with our individual lives and our life together in order to manifest to each other and to the world that God is in the process of making all things new.
We welcome you to our services. We have a morning service beginning at 10.00 and an afternoon service beginning at 3:30.
