Monroe County’s first Reformed Church; beautifully situated along the Elroy-Sparta State Trail and humbly relying on the means of grace that God has appointed for his church for the gathering and perfecting of the saints.
Looking for a church here in Monroe County?
Are you looking for a church that is true to the Bible and that also speaks to the needs of our day?
Your search will probably be complicated because of the wide variety of churches that are found in most communities.
Some local churches are faithful to God’s Word, but many are not. Some even think they are following the Bible, but have fallen into serious error.
We are, by no means, a perfect church, but we are committed to the glory of God, the authority of scripture, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our website will further acquaint you with our doctrine and practice, but the best way to get to know us better would be to visit our services.

Our Heritage as a Reformed Church
The Five Solas
After centuries of medieval darkness, the light of the gospel was restored through a historical event called the Protestant Reformation. Sadly, the modern church seems to be drifting back into darkness. As a Reformed church seeking to glorify God here in Monroe County, we re-affirm the “Five Solas” which summarize the simplicity of the biblical gospel of God’s free grace to sinners. The text is borrowed from the Cambridge Declaration.
The Erosion of Authority
Scripture alone is the inerrant rule of the church’s life, but the evangelical church today has separated Scripture from its authoritative function. In practice, the church is guided, far too often, by the culture. Therapeutic technique, marketing strategies, and the beat of the entertainment world often have far more to say about what the church wants, how it functions and what it offers, than does the Word of God… [read more]
The Erosion of Christ-Centered Faith
As evangelical faith becomes secularized, its interests have been blurred with those of the culture. The result is a loss of absolute values, permissive individualism, and a substitution of wholeness for holiness, recovery for repentance, intuition for truth, feeling for belief, chance for providence, and immediate gratification for enduring hope… [read more]
The Erosion of The Gospel
Unwarranted confidence in human ability is a product of fallen human nature. This false confidence now fills the evangelical world; from the self-esteem gospel, to the health and wealth gospel, from those who have transformed the gospel into a product to be sold and sinners into consumers who want to buy, to others who treat Christian faith as being true simply because it works… [read more]
The Erosion of The Chief Article
Justification is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. This is the article by which the church stands or falls. Today this article is often ignored, distorted or sometimes even denied by leaders, scholars and pastors who claim to be evangelical. Although fallen human nature has always recoiled from recognizing its need for Christ’s imputed righteousness, modernity greatly fuels the fires of this discontent with the biblical Gospel… [read more]
Soli Deo Gloria
The Erosion of God-Centered Worship
Wherever in the church biblical authority has been lost, Christ has been displaced, the gospel has been distorted, or faith has been perverted, it has always been for one reason: our interests have displaced God’s and we are doing his work in our way. The loss of God’s centrality in the life of today’s church is common and lamentable… [read more]
