Boger Reformed Church

 

Passionately Proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ

 

As a German Reformed church, we follow in the footsteps of the Protestant Reformation, placing our faith in the perfect love and sovereignty of God over all things. We preach the forgiveness of sins by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice. We maintain the centrality of the work of the Spirit through the church in God’s plan for the salvation of humanity. We adhere to the supremacy of the Bible as our ultimate and final authority for life and faith. These Scriptural truths are reflected in the three ecumenical creeds of the church; the Apostles, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds, as well as many of the Protestant confessions that emanated from the Protestant Reformation, such as the Heidelberg Catechism and the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion.

Because we believe that the Scriptures are the final authority for faith and life, we make the teaching of those Scriptures the center of our liturgical worship and the life of our church. 

We believe in God’s sovereignty over all things, we teach that God elected His people to salvation before the world began. God sends His Spirit to His elect to work faith in them at His appointed time, so that our conversion is the result of His first working in us.​ However, we also understand that election is not salvation itself, but election is always unto salvation. God desires not the death of a sinner, but rather desires that they may turn from their sin and that they may place their faith in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation. The Gospel is a freely given and open call to all who hear and believe.

What We Believe 

 

 

  • In one God, who has revealed himself in three distinct persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; who share one substance, power, and eternity as one, true, eternal God.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q25; Articles of Religion: Article I) 

  • God has revealed Himself fully and decisively as attested in Holy Scripture. We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired and authoritative Word of God. The Scriptures are the guide of faith and life.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q21, Q87; Articles of Religion: Articles VI, VIII, XVII, XXV) 

  • There is only one way to salvation – through Jesus Christ.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q29, Q30, Q61, Q67; Articles of Religion: Article XVIII, XXXI) 

  • The sanctity of human life at every stage based on our creation in the image of God and our election by God for service in His kingdom.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q6, Q86; Articles of Religion: Article XVII) 

  • The Biblical guidelines for human sexuality: marriage as the union of one man and one woman, chastity outside of marriage, lifelong fidelity and holiness in marriage for the sake of the Kingdom.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q108; Articles of Religion: Article XXXIV) 

  • That the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel of salvation to the whole world, and to spread the same Gospel by living in unity and obedience under the authority of God. 

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q54, Q83, Q84, Q104, Q114; Articles of Religion: Articles VII, XXXIV) 

  • In accordance with the teachings of Jesus, we recognize two Sacraments as outward and visible signs of an inward and spiritual grace: Baptism and The Lord's Supper or Holy Communion, that by their use the Lord may demonstrate and further seal his promises to us.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q65, Q66, Q67, Q68, Q69, Q70, Q71, Q72, Q73, Q74, Q75, Q76, Q77, Q78, Q79, Q80, Q81, Q82; Articles of Religion: Article XIX, XXV) 

  • That the Sacrament of Baptism is a visible token and sure sign of grace that we are washed by the blood and spirit of Jesus. We also affirm the covenant made in Christ's blood with the people of God, including people of all ages and thereby do not exclude infants and young children from the sacrament of Baptism and its grace. 

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q69, Q70, Q71, Q72, Q73, Q74; Articles of Religion: Article XXV, XXVII)

  • That the bread and wine of the Lord's Supper, being divine tokens of Christ's body and blood, are a sure and certain witness that we are united with Christ's body and washed in his blood. We reject that these tokens undergo any change of substance or become the physical flesh and blood of Christ in any carnal way. Rather, we affirm that Christ in his spirit nourishes our souls in the sacrament, and that the body and blood of Christ are consumed in a heavenly and spiritual manner. Those who consume the bread and wine of the sacrament but are void of lively faith do not partake of the body and blood of Jesus in any way.

    • (Heidelberg Catechism: Q65, Q66, Q75, Q76, Q77, Q78, Q79, Q80, Q81, Q82; Articles of Religion: Article XXV, XXVIII, XXIX, XXX)

About Us

 

Boger Reformed Church was organized by the Rev. W. W. Rowe in 1905. The congregation consisted of 17 members. Boger was organized as a member congregation of the North Carolina Classis of the German Reformed Church in the United States (abbreviated R.C.U.S.). In 1934 the R.C.U.S merged with the Evangelical Church to form the Evangelical and Reformed (E&R) Church so the congregation updated its name to Boger Evangelical and Reformed Church. In 1957 the E&R Church merged with the Congregational Christian Church, resulting in the formation of the United Church of Christ (UCC). To reflect this merger, the congregation once again changed its name, this time to Boger United Church of Christ.

In 2013 Boger withdrew from the United Church of Christ, formally becoming an independent German Reformed church. At that time the congregation voted to restore its original name, once again becoming Boger Reformed Church. 

 

In January 2023, Boger called the Rev. Dr. John Taylor Brantley to serve as our pastor.
