Albuquerque Reformed Church is a particular congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, based in Albuquerque, NM.
Mission: Our purpose is to faithfully declare the Word of God, to rightly administer the sacraments of the Lord's Supper and Baptism, and to properly practice discipline. Discipline begins with paying attention to the teaching of God's Word. It includes implementing the teaching of Matthew 18. If need be, discipline extends to censure.
I Corinthians 15: 1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Ephesians 4 King James Version (KJV)
1 therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Matthew 6:30-34 New International Version (NIV)
30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
A few months ago our church learned to chant, using Psalm 19 as an example. Here some of our church youth were given the challenge to correctly arrange the pieces of this verse. They did it in less than a minute because of how chanting imprinted the Scripture on their mind.
Turn your sound on to hear them chant.

omf.org Most of us envisage our future retirement as a time when we will live life at a slower pace. But, for many Japanese pastors, it usually means they will move to a new church in a different part of Japan. This is because there aren't enough pastors in Japan and many churches without pastors.
Give thanks to God and pray.

desiringgod.org The world is full of gospels. Having hope and living well depends on being able to hear them all and tell the difference. Here are three simple questions to ask of any sermon.
Second Helvitic Confession chapter 1: CANONICAL SCRIPTURE. We believe and confess the canonical Scriptures of the holy prophets and
apostles of both Testaments to be the true Word of God, and to have sufficient authority of themselves,
not of men. For God himself spoke to the fathers, prophets, apostles, and still speaks to us through the
And in this Holy Scripture, the universal Church of Christ has the most complete exposition of all that
pertains to a saving faith, and also to the framing of a life acceptable to God; and in this respect it is
expressly commanded by God that nothing be either added to or taken from the same.
SCRIPTURE TEACHES FULLY ALL GODLINESS. We judge, therefore, that from these Scriptures are
to be derived true wisdom and godliness, the reformation and government of churches; as also instruction
in all duties of piety; and, to be short, the confirmation of doctrines, and the rejection of all errors,
moreover, all exhortations according to that word of the apostle, "All scripture is inspired by God and
profitable for teaching, for reproof," etc. (II Timothy 3:16-17). Again, "I am writing these instructions to
you," says the apostle to Timothy, "So that you may know how one ought to behave in the household of
God," etc. (I Timothy 3:14-15). SCRIPTURE IS THE WORD OF GOD. Again, the selfsame apostle to
the Thessalonians: "When," says he, "You received the word of God which you heard from us, you
accepted it, not as the word of men but as what it really is, the Word of God," etc. (I Thess. 2:13) For the
Lord himself has said in the gospel, "It is not you who speak, but the Spirit of my Father speaking
through you"; therefore "He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me"
(Matt. 10:20; Luke 10:16; John 13:20)
THE PREACHING OF THE WORD OF GOD IS THE WORD OF GOD. Wherefore when this Word of
God is now preached in the church by preachers lawfully called, we believe that the very Word of God is
proclaimed, and received by the faithful; and that neither any other Word of God is to be invented nor is
to be expected from heaven: and that now the Word itself which is preached is to be regarded, not the
minister that preaches; for even if he be evil and a sinner, nevertheless the Word of God remains still true
Neither do we think that therefore the outward preaching is to be thought as fruitless because the
instruction in true religion depends on the inward illumination of the Spirit, or because it is written "And
no longer shall each man teach his neighbor..., for they shall all know me" (Jer. 31:34), And "Neither he
who plants nor he that waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth" (I Cor. 3:7). For although
"No one can come to Christ unless he be drawn by the Father" (John 6:44), And unless the Holy Spirit
inwardly illumines him, yet we know that it is surely the will of God that his Word should be preached
outwardly also. God could indeed, by his Holy Spirit, or by the ministry of an angel, without the ministry
of St. Peter, have taught Cornelius in the Acts; but, nevertheless, he refers him to Peter, of whom the
angel speaking says, "He shall tell you what you ought to do."
We believe that those Holy Scriptures fully contain the will of God, and that whatsoever man ought to believe unto salvation is sufficiently taught therein. For since the whole manner of worship which God requires of us is written in them at large, it is unlawful for any one, though an apostle, to teach otherwise than we are now taught in the Holy Scriptures: nay, though it were an angel from heaven, as the apostle Paul saith. For since it is forbidden to add unto or take away any thing from the Word of God, it doth thereby evidently appear that the doctrine thereof is most perfect and complete in all respects.
Neither do we consider of equal value any writing of men, however holy these men may have been, with those divine Scriptures; nor ought we to consider custom, or the great multitude, or antiquity, or succession of times and persons, or councils, decrees, or statutes, as of equal value with the truth of God, for the truth is above all; for all men are of themselves liars, and more vain than vanity itself. Therefore we reject with all our hearts whatsoever doth not agree with this infallible rule which the apostles have taught us, saying, Try the spirits whether they are of God. Likewise, If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house.
[09/06/18] Being Reformed is more than being a Calvinist. Being a Calvinist is one part of being Reformed. Calvinism includes a vibrant doctrine of the church and an enthusiastic embrace of the Reformed confession as well as the ancient creeds of the church.
[04/03/18] Albuquerque Reformed Church is an Orthodox Presbyterian congregation. What do all those words mean? We are orthodox in doctrine which basically means that we believe the Bible, the Word of God and all that it teaches. We are Presbyterian and Reformed. That means that we are Presbyterian in government, or rule by elders, and that we are Creedal and Confessional. That is, we confess the Apostles and Nicene Creeds and the Westminster Confession of Faith is our doctrinal statement. If you want to know what we believe, read those documents.

Reformation truth rightly explained. Great article and well worth the time to read.
placefortruth.org The season of the Reformation ‘Solas’ has just ended and we have been reminded of the ‘aloneness’ of Scripture, grace, faith, Christ and the glory of God. But, hopefully, we will have also been reminded too that none of these are ‘alone’ in an absolute sense.

[11/06/17] Paul’s letters to the churches reveal an assumption that is often overlooked. He wrote to the Romans: be devoted to one another, give preference to one another, love one another, and be of the same mind toward one another. To the Corinthians, he wrote: greet one another with a holy kiss. To the Galatians, he wrote: through love serve one another. To the Ephesians, he wrote: forbear one another, be kind to one another, and forgive each other. This relationship of one to another requires a community. How can you love another in the church if you do not participate in any of its services? How can you be part of a community with which you never commune? Lord’s Day services are a necessary corollary to what it means to love, respect, forbear, and forgive one another. The church is a community where you may participate in God’s design for you “in community.” It’s only in community that you may relate to “one another.” You may have missed being with your brothers and sisters this past Lord’s Day. Plan to be with them this coming Lord’s Day. Also consider the mid-week Bible studies or services of your church. Being together in community is where love for one another is expressed. You make plans to do other things, sometimes at great expense to your schedule, your convenience, your money, etc. Why not put forth as much effort to be with your church this coming Lord’s Day. Considering current affairs, like the killing that took place at First Baptist Church, Sutherland, TX, you never know when or whether you will meet your brothers and sisters again in this life.
[11/01/17] People who say that the assembling together for worship is not important, just being a good or nice person is all that matters, are god-denying. They may be good people. They may be better than most. In the end they will be standing on their morality ladders set up in hell. "For by grace you are saved" (Ephesians 2:8-10). It's by grace that you become a good person; it's by God's working that Christians work. For Christians are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works that God prepared beforehand that Christians should walk in them. If you are not in Christ your good works are filthy menstrual rags (Isaiah 64:6).
[10/31/17] William Perkins made the following comments in his exposition of Matthew 5:2ff and wise words indeed are they: "And for this purpose He delivers this doctrine unto them, in the first general head of His sermon: that true happiness before God is ever joined, yea covered many times, with the cross in this world. Whereby He strikes at the root of their carnal conceit, who placed true happiness in outward things, and looked for outward peace and prosperity upon the receiving of the gospel. The Use. As this is the scope of the doctrine following, so it stands us in hand to learn the same, and to find experience hereof in our own hearts, that true comfort and felicity is accompanied with manifold miseries in this life. Indeed, carnal wisdom deems them happy that enjoy outward peace, wealth, and pleasure. But this conceit must be removed, and Christ’s doctrine embraced, who joins true happiness with the cross. Secondly, this serves to teach us patience in affliction, for it is God’s will to temper happiness and the cross together. Now this puts life into an afflicted soul, to think that Christ will have His felicity enjoyed and felt in outward misery. Thus much of this head of doctrine in general, now we come to the branches thereof."
