ABOUT SANTA CLARITA URC
Santa Clarita United Reformed Church is a church plant mission work under the oversight of First Chino United Reformed Church in Chino, CA.
OUR CONGREGATIONAL VISION
Our vision for Santa Clarita United Reformed Church is to be a church that is characterized by God-honoring worship, Christ-centered preaching, covenant nurture, and gospel witness in the Santa Clarita Valley. We believe that through the proclamation of the good news of the gospel, the Holy Spirit renews our faith, and fills us with gratitude and reverence so that we do those good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.
THE LORD'S DAY
While we do not view it in a legalistic manner, we do believe that God has called us to be set apart from the world. The Lord’s Day is set apart for sacred purposes and is therefore God’s gift to us for the building of our families in the faith. For this reason we are committed to gathering for worship twice each Lord’s Day. We are committed to being one of the only churches in Santa Clarita with both a morning and an evening service. The evening service is centered around a catechical sermon focused on instructing the church in the whole counsel of God.
MORE ABOUT US
The Santa Clarita United Reformed Church exists to bring together like minded Christians who want to establish a church in Santa Clarita, CA in the trajectory of the Protestant Reformation tradition within the federation of the United Reformed Churches of North America (URCNA http://www.urcna.org).
We believe and teach that salvation is by faith alone, through grace alone, in Christ alone, that Scripture alone is our inerrant rule and revealed will of God for life and salvation, and that all the glory in the work of salvation belongs to God alone - these are often referred to as the “Five Solas” of the Reformation.
We believe that the Presbyterian and Reformed traditions as expressed in the historic creeds of the Protestant Reformation, namely, The Three forms of Unity (The Heidelberg Catechism, The Canons of Dordt, and Belgic Confession), and the Westminster Standards (Westminster Larger Catechism, Westminster Shorter Catechism and Westminster Confession of Faith) express the most faithful, accurate, and biblically concise system of doctrine contained in the Bible.
