For more than 20 years Covenant Reformed Church at Grass Valley (CRCGV) has been serving Christ and her people faithfully. After struggling with declining membership CRCGV’s remaining members have voted to close her doors effective April 29th 2019.
We invite you to join with us as we continue to worship God, teach about Christ the only way, truth and life leading to salvation, and experience:
True Worship Before the Throne
We recognize, teach and confess all the glory for our redemption belongs to God alone. It is “his glorious power” which changes us and molds us into the image of Christ. It’s not about how many times you have read the bible, or how many verses you have memorized, or how many moving songs you sing, it’s all about Christ and what he has commanded us to practice, teach, preach and share. (Matt 28:18-20). True worship is found in those churches which focus on the following:
Christ Alone – Is the undeniable truth presented in the Scriptures which testify of Christ, Faith which is found in Christ Jesus, and Grace which is administered eternally by God on the merits of Christ and his shed blood only. Christ and Christ alone is the only hope of salvation. (Heb 7:23-28, 9:14-28; Gal 4:4-5)
Glory to God Alone – These four words are the battle cry of every Christian who faces the fallen world, a frenzied news cycle, and every other trial and temptation; hour by hour until we are received into Glory or Christ our Lord returns. God alone is worthy of our praise and adoration, as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. All glory belongs to the Lord of Lord’s and King of Kings. (Ps 29:1-2, 96:7-8; Rom 11:36; Rev 19:1-7)
Faith Alone – Reflects our acceptance of the Scriptural standards which teach us where our Faith comes from. We have heard the voice of Christ the Word of God, and as his sheep we follow him. It’s not about us opening the door to find Christ, its about answering his gracious knocking, which begins the change in our hearts, and produces a hunger and thirst for righteousness. Christ is our righteousness and our salvation come through faith alone in him. (Eph 2:8-9; 2 Thess 2:13)
Grace Alone – Teaches us the truth that all we receive from the Lord is a gift we can never earn. Unmerited favor which is bestowed upon us is the demonstrable evidence of the mercy and loving-kindness of God.
Scripture Alone – Reflects our knowledge of God’s Word as our highest authority. Because, it is the Word of God, and we desire to live by its every precept as Christ our Lord did. We will not ever be perfect in this endeavor, but we can bear one another burdens as we struggle through failures and seasons of grace and blessings. (Rom 10:17; 1 Cor 4:13-14; 2 Tim 3:15-17)
We are confession oriented holding to the teaching of the early Church as formulated in the Apostles Creed:
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell; the third day He rose from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of
God the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge
the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy, catholic Church, the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
