Vision and Mission

 

“We, a community of believers called by God, are traveling on a spiritual journey of reaching out and sharing the love of God, the forgiveness through Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit to those who are seeking.”

~Mission Statement,

November 2000



We exist to make disciples.  We are called to live as Christ's church in our daily lives, and to help others do the same.  

 

This is the mission of our church, and we accomplish this through corporate worship, fellowship, the study of God's Word, and the development of personal discipleship and service to the community.

History

As a congregation we had our beginning here in Bluffton in 18​82 as a part of the Reformed Church in the  United States.  Since then, we have partici­pated in two historic mergers . . .

 

Reformed Church and the Evangelical Synod of North America (1934) and

Evangelical and Reformed union with the Congregational Christian Churches (1957), which formed the United Church of Christ in the U.S.A.

In 2006 the church returned to its historical roots and became the  First Reformed Church of Bluffton.  First Reformed Church is a member of the Evangelical Association of Reformed and Congregational Christian Churches.

 

In the light of this heritage we recognize two sacraments:  Baptism and the Lord's Supper.  We embrace in fellowship and love all who confess Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Savior of the world.
