Who We Are
We are Baptist & Reformed
Christ Reformed Church is a Reformed Baptist church. To help you get a better picture of what it means to be a Reformed Baptist church click here.
Although our beliefs can be summarized in the 1689 Second London Baptist Confession, the following is a list of distinctives that characterize us.
We believe . . .
Christ is to be treasured above all things
In expository preaching and teaching
In biblical fellowship
In missions & evangelism
In promoting biblical manhood & womanhood (Complementarianism)
In a six literal day creation
In the inspiration, authority, & sufficiency of Scripture
Christ can be found in the Old Testament
The regulative principle (i.e., Scripture directs us in how we are to worship)
The gospel to be the power of God unto salvation
Churches should be elder ruled
The church is to be intentional about making disciples
In lordship salvation
In practicing regenerate church membership
In practicing church discipline
Believers are to devote themselves to prayer (corporately & individually)
We are to seek God's glory in all things
We are Not
Christ Reformed Church is a new church plant located in Jenks. The church started in the summer of 2017 with a desire to be Christ-centered, theologically grounded, and missions minded. WE ARE NOT A SOCIAL JUSTICE CHURCH! We believe that the Gospel Coalition and many in the New Calvinist movement are heretical. We are Calvinist but NOT a part of the New Calvinist movement. As a church, most of our members come from a Southern Baptist background. However, we are not affiliated with the SBC or any other denomination, we simply identify ourselves as Reformed Baptists and hold to the 2nd London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689.
STATEMENT ON SOCIAL JUSTICE & MARXISM
We denounce the false, different gospel (Galatians 1:6-10) being promulgated in Christianity known by such names as: New Calvinism, Neo-Calvinism, and "Young, Restless, Reformed." Its doctrines include social justice, socialism, communism, Marxism, liberation theology, progressivism (so called), critical race theory, racial reconciliation (so called, because it actually causes racial strife), white privilege, white guilt, intersectionality, violence, reparations, idolatry, evolutionism, feminism (including easy divorce, female pastors), sodomy (homosexuality), sexual orientation, freedom to sin (antinomianism, no Ten Commandments), the infringement of religious freedom against Christians, the murder of babies, Arminianism, Catholicism, universalism (everyone will be saved, including Satan), inclusivism (people are saved if they respond to whatever knowledge, even if they do not believe in Christ), celebritism, and materialism.
These are destructive heresies (2 Peter 2) contrary to Scripture and they subvert a peaceful, American society (and worldwide, for that matter) where Christians may freely preach the true Gospel (1 Timothy 2:1-7). These destructive and demonic heresies are usually foisted on society by the Democrat Party, schools, universities (including Christian colleges and seminaries), the media, social media, and the entertainment industry. They have infiltrated churches and denominations, and now we have an entirely apostate and perverted Christianity which shows no resemblance to Biblical beliefs and conduct.
Our church (christreformedchurchtulsa.org) is Reformed in the original sense of the term in the 1500 to 1600s. We reject the heretical beliefs of most found in New Calvinist churches today that are often found in the Southern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church in America, and the teachings and websites (TheGospelCoalition.org; DesiringGod.org; and others) of Timothy Keller, D.A. Carson, Albert Mohler, Russell Moore, J.D. Greear, Danny Akin, Mark Dever, John Piper, Matt Chandler, David Platt, Alistair Begg, and numerous others.
