Welcome to Secunda Reformed Church (SRC). We are a bible-teaching church situated in Secunda in the province of Mpumalanga, South Africa.
SRC is a growing congregation of Christians who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here we are committed to teaching the truth of the gospel in a way which is direct and necessary for the growth of the kingdom of God.
The people of SRC are welcoming to visitors of any age and race, and we long to see people come to salvation through Jesus Christ. If you are seeking answers for difficulties in life, sinfulness in a broken world, your eternal destination, purpose, godliness, and much more; then please visit us.
SRC welcomes all.
SRC falls under the denomination of Reformed Churches. The origin of the Reformation Movement dates back to the late 16th century when Martin Luther protested against religious monarchy. This protestant action sparked a booming revival in the understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ in many languages. Reformed churches were subsequently planted in Holland, France and Great Britain, and the spread of Reformed Churches and subsidiaries continue world wide to date.
The congregation of SRC has been functioning since 1992. From humble beginnings it has become a spiritual home for a growing number of believers.
WHAT WE BELIEVE AND TEACH
The central truths of the Reformation can be found in Romans 1:17 (NIV), "For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: 'The righteous will live by faith.'" Here the verse talks not of the righteousness demanded by God, but of the righteousness that He freely gives to those who believe the gospel. Martin Luther explained this as follows: "The sinner is justified or declared righteous by God through faith in the work and death of Jesus, not by our work or keeping of the law. In other words, the sinner is justified by receiving (by faith) rather than achieving (by works)."
An important question came about since the time of the Reformation: "How is a person saved?" This question, without a doubt, continues to plague many people over the face of the earth. Many live in fear without hope, or are disillusioned or unknowing about salvation. We believe that the answer to the above-stated question has been summarized by the sound theology of the Reformation Movement, referred to as the five solas:
1) Sola scriptura (Scripture alone)
The Bible alone is the sole authority for all matters of faith or practice.
2) Sola gracia (Grace alone)
Salvation is by God's grace alone. We are rescued from His wrath by everything He did, for He sent His son.
3) Sola fidé (Faith alone)
Salvation is possible through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Christ's righteousness is the only possible satisfaction of God's perfect justice.
4) Solus Christus (Christ alone)
Salvation is found in Christ alone. His sacrificial atonement was sufficient.
5) Soli Deo Gloria (To God alone the glory)
Salvation is of God. It has been accomplished by Him for His glory alone.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
SRC aims to assign all authority to Jesus Christ (not to men). We aim to engage in the pure preaching of the gospel, to administrate sacraments as instituted by Christ, and to practice discipline for the correcting of faults. These are performed in the hope that people may become believers in Jesus Christ and show traits of faith, fleeing from sin, pursuing holiness, loving the true God, loving their neighbours, hating sin, servanthood, wisdom, repentance, and all that is good for the extension of the kingdom of God Almighty.
Preaching and pastoral care is led by Rev. Anton Knoetze.
