    Hi Shari,

    Welcome to Christforums! Hope your time and fellowship here is fruitful!

    Like you I am Reformed and from the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC). How long have you been Reformed, and what or who lead you to the Reformed faith? Were you brought up as a Covenant child? Do you belong to any specific denomination?

    Hope you don't mind my questions, but I am sincerely curious!

    God bless,
    William

      I was saved in 1984 (age 19) and went to a Pentecostal church; even in my early years, God blessed me with discernment and I knew something was awry with the teaching (and behaviors). Over the years I studied diligently, but was always drawn to Allistair Begg, RC Sproul, John MacCarthur, etc... About 3 years ago, it all finally "clicked" for me and I consider myself a Calvinist.

      I am currently attending a Wesleyan Church (long story) and of course completely unsatisfied with the teaching(s); however, for reasons I will not bore you with, I am there for now and am praying for the pastor(s) and learning that I don't have to try and control what I cannot and should not. There is a Berean Church which I have visited and is much more in line with what I believe; however, my son attends this church and I am committed to worshiping together; that being said, it is getting increasingly difficult for me as the pastor is preaching antinomian hyper-grace nonsense. That being said, there are good things going on as well; not judgmental and a huge outreach to the poorest of our community.

      I love Jesus, love His Word and am thankful that He restored the joy of my salvation and His Word is as satisfying as it was when I first got saved.

      Thank you for taking the time to talk with me William.
