First Day of Lectures

Day one of the Reformation Church History course went very well. 14 members and pastors of area churches where in attendance. Most of the churches represented  have a Pentecostal background. They are young in the Reformed faith. Studying the history of the church will provide them with an understanding how Christ has gathered, defended and preserved His Church through the Reformation. It will give them an understanding of the catholicity of the church and how the church extends through the ages.

Psalm 78: 7
"so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments"

 Medieval theology, medieval mysticism, the rise of the popes , the decline of the popes. Key figures such as Wycliffe, Huss, Johann Von Staupitz, and Luther were touched on in the lessons today.

After the lectures it was time for supper and a Jeepney ride downtown. We met with our brothers from the Baldivis church. Rev. t'Hart and br. Hendrick deJonge who have been doing similar work in the area the past week. It was great to meet with them and enjoy a nice meal. 

Please continue to pray for the work being done here.
