Methodists, Charismatics, or any other conservative, Nicene- derived Christian Church.

Christforums is:

.... an orthodox Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another forum.

Enjoy your fellowship

In order to understand the importance of Christian fellowship, we must first understand what Christian fellowship is and what it isn’t. The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. This relationship is described by Jesus in His high-priestly prayer for His followers in John 17:23. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces Christ centeredness in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

Shalom brotherhood,

 

I have listen a very few worship song written from reformed preacher

 

Isnt the worship song is more earnest worship by spirit and not only in truth ? As written in bible, worship in spirit and truth

 

I probably lost some feeling after from worship song to praise song

 

Thanks

I asked you this question before about your church and you said you belonged to a Reformed Evangelical church. I have no idea what that it is. Can you provide a link to your church?

GRII Gereja Reformed Injili Indonesia , Indonesian Reformed Evangelical Church is name one of few Reformed church in Indonesia

 

I have listen of their praise , but I am about more burning by worship song but very few in Reformed hymn book , it is like How Great Thou Art and Abide with Me ?

 

I am about more being in a grief feeling in worship song

 

What is wrong in worship song and how it is very little found in Reformed Evangelical hymn book ?

Again, I have no idea what "Reformed Evangelical" is.

 

The Trinity hymnal of the Orthodox Presbyterian church has hundreds if not a thousand or so hymns: https://www.opc.org/hymnal.html

 

Sounds like you're explaining your desire to attend a "contemporary" church rather than a Reformed church:

Hi,,,and welcome aboard ,,,again. We have our singing session at the beginning of the service in my church . Usually two songs and that's all. I say that because I have been in attendance at services in other churches that spend almost half of the service devoted to singing various inspired songs . To the point that it becomes boring and people eventually lose interest in the forth coming sermon . That's not a good sign because it may effect future church attendance .  M
