Winchester Reformed Presbyterian Church exists to proclaim and contend for the truth of Jesus Christ in order that sinners might be brought into the joyful fellowship of the body to grow to the fullness of maturity because the Lamb is worthy is to receive the reward of his suffering.
In other words, it’s not only the pastor’s ministry to declare grace, peace, mercy, and love, but to actively work to realize these things in the whole of his ministry. To put it simply: the mouthpiece of blessing should also be a minister of blessing.
It may seem odd that nestled between chapters on religious worship and the civil magistrate is a chapter on oaths and vows. Nevertheless, this teaching has received attention within confessional Protestantism as a part of Christian doctrine, worship, and piety.
