We are a gathering of many families from a variety of backgrounds who desire to worship together and walk together before the LORD. Pompton Plains Free Reformed Church is committed to the transforming work of grace in individual lives. It is our desire to see people come to know Jesus Christ and to have their lives transformed by the gospel of free and sovereign grace. Though sinners, we desire to walk in the light of God’s countenance by repentance, faith, and holiness. Come worship with us!
The Bible is…
We believe that the Bible is “inspired”, that is the Bible is God-breathed. (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
We believe in the “authority” of the Bible. Because the scriptures are God’breathed, they carry His authority. Therefore profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and for training a person in righteousness.
We believe in the “canonicity” of the Bible. This means we believe God providentially directed the church in uncovering what books belong in the Bible. The sixty-six books are alone God’s final Word.
We believe the Bible is “trustworthy.” We believe the Bible we have today accurately records the mind of God to man. Therefore we look to the Bible to hear God’s authoritative word delivered to us.
We use the Authorized Version of the Bible in all official church functions, and sing the Psalms exclusively in worship.
As a congregation we desire to:
- Worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24)
- Proclaim the glorious Gospel of God’s free & saving grace (Matthew 18:28-29)
- See the salvation of souls (1 Peter 1:9)
- Build up the body of Christ locally in New Jersey and beyond (Ephesians 4)
- Love and serve one another and our community (Hebrews 10:23-25)
