Church Unity

How should one balance the biblical mandate for unity with the biblical mandate for purity, especially in light of the fact that none of us is as "pure" as we should be? Are there different "levels" of unity for which we might strive, some appropriate in certain situations and others appropriate in other situations? With whom should participants in the World Reformed FELLOWSHIP seek to maintain "fellowship?" Where does "cooperation" in the cause of the Gospel become "compromise?" Where does insistence upon Gospel purity become unnecessary theological "nit-picking?"

This is obviously a particularly important subject for an organization like the World Refomed Fellowship and the materials in this section will seek to address these issues.

Report on
The 28th General Assembly 
of
The Evangelical Presbyterian Church

 

"I left spiritually refreshed and energized."

"We had a blast and I can't wait till next year."

"It was a wonderful Assembly."

"It’s continually heartwarming to be among EPC people, who are always of one mind on what truly matters for The LORD - and who don't become disagreeable when disagreeing on the peripheral."
