When we invoke the whole phrase — “the church Reformed and always being reformed according to the Word of God” — we confess that we belong to the church and not simply to ourselves and that this church is always created and renewed by the Word of God rather than by the spirit of the age.
The Church is not a natural community but an outpost of God's Kingdom in this present evil age.
Other Christian organizations must remain subordinate to and supportive of the Christian's commitment to the local church.
There is today a great temptation in the church to dispense the christological foundation laid by the Apostle Paul.
We must focus our attention on the church's local and visible manifestations in the light of its catholic and invisible reality.
