Christ Reformed Baptist Church is a group of believers in Christ who launched a new church in the city of New Castle, IN under the authority and endorsement of Pastor Doug's home church the Bible Study Chapel - Indianapolis, IN
Our desire is to see a Reformed Baptist Church be used by God to bring the gospel and the truth of God’s Word to all of Henry County and the surrounding area – all unto God's glory!
Pursuing God: At Christ Reformed Baptist Church, we have a passion for Biblical Christianity - both in its simplicity and in its intensity. We place our emphasis on praise rather than programs, Scripture rather than sentiment, compassion rather than comparison. The atmosphere at CRBC is warm, reverent and worshipful. The people are sensitive and sympathetic toward those who are struggling beneath the burdens of life.
We make no claim to being a perfect church, but we are a body of believers who are pursuing a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and who are striving to serve each other and our community to the glory of His name!
Praising God: In a day when religion has commonly become more focused on the creature than on the Creator, we believe in a God Who is infinitely able to save His children from their sins, Who is infinitely sufficient to satisfy their deepest needs, and Who is therefore infinitely worthy of their praise and everlasting worship.
Together: Motivated by a desire for God’s glory, we believe that our purpose as a church of Jesus Christ is to call men and women to repentance from sin and to the renewing of their minds according to Holy Scripture unto a delighted service toward Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
The messages that come from our pulpit feature expository, Bible-based teaching that strives to glorify God by equipping His people to face the rigors of a vibrant Christian life. When you step into the worship service here, it is refreshingly like stepping into the New Testament: our families sit together, and worship together. Services are a simple, powerful mixture of singing, preaching, and prayer.
It is our humble conviction that the time-honored wisdom of the Bible speaks to current issues in a way that is as up-to-date as the morning newspaper. For this reason, our pastor and others in the church are always available for practical, biblical counseling for individuals or families who are wrestling with the challenges of modern life.
No matter what your past faults, failures, or experiences may be, we invite you to share with us in the great adventure of pursuing God together and enjoying Him forever!
Our Core Values: Faithfulness to the Word of God Love for Christ Simplicity, joy and reverence in public worship Delight in God’s people Commitment to help strengthen families Loving concern for the souls of men
Our name: Christ – We are a Christ-centered church. We exist to serve and give glory to Jesus Christ. We pray that we may accomplish this by making the focus of all we say and do to be on the Lord Jesus Christ as revealed through the Holy Scriptures. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He must increase and we must decrease.
Reformed Baptist – This phrase refers 1) to our theological conviction that the Protestant reformers got the gospel right, along with many other things, and 2) to our theological conviction that water baptism is reserved for disciples of Jesus Christ and that each local church is to be self-governed under the authority of the Word of God and carried out by its elected, ordained elders. Our doctrinal statement is The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.
Church – This refers to the fact that we are a local body of believers in Christ, baptized upon the profession of our faith, gathering each Lord’s Day for public worship – the Word of God preached and read, prayer, singing, ordinances, and discipline, commissioned by Christ to preach the gospel to our community and to the nations of the earth.
