St. John's Reformed Church

Friedensburg, Pennsylvania

What We Believe

Though we deeply love the Canons of Dort, Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, Westminster Standards, and we strive for the unity in all of them, we adhere closest to the conveyed truth that is set out in the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith and the Baptist Catechism written by Benjamin Keach (1640-1704).
Other distinctives from the pulpit are Reformed Baptist Covenant Theology, Theonomy, Postmillenialism, and the Abolition of Abortion. Even though there may be strong convictions held by those who preach here, we recognize that not everyone in the pew will hold the same view on these matters.
