Our Purpose

As a body of believers in Jesus Christ, the Saviour, we the members of the Reformed Church of Box Hill hold the Bible as the only Authority for faith and life upon which our church is built, that the sovereignty of God must be applied to all areas of life, and that God must receive all glory.

The Reformed Church of Box Hill exists so that:

The people of God may celebrate in worship (by song, prayer and the proclamation of the Word of God) their joy, gratitude and wonder at being freely redeemed from eternal death to eternal life, through the birth, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and are therefore made children of God the Father out of sheer sovereign grace. All who are searching for answers and solutions to life's perplexing problems, and who by faith confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour may be assisted, encouraged and strengthened in their growth in grace by instruction from the pulpit, Bible studies, catechism classes, youth groups, and fellowship with other Christians. We shall at all times endeavour to care for the needy in our midst, in the community of Box Hill, and in the world, by acts of mercy.

We shall glorify the Lord God of heaven and earth by dedicating our whole lives and all our resources to implement the Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20, so that His church may grow in grace and unbelievers may be reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through life-style evangelism, that gives ready testimony to the salvation received in Christ.

For this purpose to be executed, we recognise God has called forth the leadership, the session, to equip and direct it to fulfil its calling so that the church may advance and His Kingdom rule be established.
