About Us.

A quick introduction to Geneva.

Contemporary Orthodoxy

 Unchanging truth in a changing world.

Can a book written over two thousand years ago, really have any impact on your life?

It may be that the word "orthodoxy" turns you off. We understand.  It is not exactly everyday language. Perhaps it conjures up ideas of stuffy formalism, people who are out of date, or even legalism.

Should the church change with the times? Should we not adjust our worship and our teaching to suit the needs of a changing world? After all, do we not now face challenges that even our grandparents did not experience?

There is, of course, an element of truth to this idea. But, the Bible is a bit like oxygen. You do not hear people complaining that oxygen is a little outdated. The only reason people speak so of Scripture, is that its unchanging message does not suit them. Yet the Bible, God’s Word to all people, addresses the needs of everyone, from the greatest need– salvation, to your daily life.

Reaching out

Part of the church’s mission is to spread the good news of the gospel. This is often called the "Great Commission" after our Lord’s commission to the church to go into all the world and make disciples of men (Matthew 28:16). Sometimes this work is called evangelism or mission work.

Geneva is active in the work of evangelism abroad and is seeking an increased presence in Woodstock and the local community.

Just what does...

The Means of Grace

...mean, anyway?

One remarkable truth much neglected by Christians is known as the means of grace. By this we mean the outward ways through which God grants grace to the Christian. The means are like channels or avenues – designated paths by which God provides strengthening grace to his people.

The three means of grace are the Word (the Bible), the Sacraments (the Lord’s Supper and baptism) and prayer.

Word: The Bible is the very word of God that he has given to his people. Scripture tells us that the Word of God is inspired (2 Timothy 3:16) – that is, the original documents of Scripture come to us as the very will of God, without error or confusion.
sacraments-circle
Sacraments: Perhaps you are not familiar with idea of sacraments. You may have heard baptism or the Lord’s Supper referred to instead as "ordinances." How can it be that either baptism and the Lord’s Supper be means by which God grants the Christian to grow in grace?
hands-circle
Prayer: In prayer, we draw close to God and praise, thank and bless him for who he is, and offer to him prayers concerning our needs. We pray, just as we read the Word and take the Sacraments, in faith. Without faith, none of these means of grace is effective.

Ever since the theological doctrine of the covenant of works was codified in the 17th century in the Westminster Confession of Faith (1647) it has come under criticism and outright rejection.  In past years rejection has come not only from the broader evangelical community but also from withi . . .

I recently preached on the first miracle of our Lord in John 2:1-11. It was a fascinating and rewarding experience for me.  Commonly known as the miracle of the “water to wine”, we encounter our Lord, his mother and some disciples at a wedding feast in Cana.  Running out o . . .
