preparing to move
As the Lord has blessed us with growth, RBCP is preparing to move under a space-sharing arrangement with the First Hungarian Reformed Church in Munhall, just a block and a half from our current location. This move is occurring in stages:
1. The Pastor's Study and Baptist Institute have moved to the FHRC Parsonage. Internet service is no longer available at the Homestead Presbyterian Church location.
2. Prep work for the parsonage is underway. The building is being cleaned and some mold remediation is about to take place. New flooring is in the works for the first floor nursery and children's Sabbath school locations. A team of volunteers will be here from June 26-29 to prep, paint, install a new kitchen floor, and a number of other tasks. A second team will be here from July 9-13 to complete additional tasks.
Lord's Day Services are held at 908 Ann St., Second Floor, Homestead, PA 15120.
What is a "Reformed Baptist Church?"
Christian in Faith
We believe in one Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. One God, who created mankind in His own image and planned for our salvation from sin and death from all eternity. We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His death and resurrection and affirm that He is seated at the right hand of God the Father and rules and reigns over all. We believe in the one Gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in God's Holy Word.
Reformed in Understanding
By "Reformed" we mean that we believe that the Bible is the only rule for faith and life in Christ. We believe that salvation is by God's grace through faith. In the 16th and 17th centuries, men of faith who believed these simple truths sought to reform the Roman church. This group, collectively known as Protestants, formed churches teaching five doctrines that became known as the "Doctrines of Grace." We affirm all of these essential teachings of Christian faith and for this reason call ourselves "Reformed."
Baptist in Practice
The Bible teaches that Christian baptism is a sign that a believer has undergone death, burial, and resurrection in Jesus Christ. This is symbolized by total immersion in water at the time the believer makes a personal confession of faith, shows evidence of regeneration by the Holy Spirit, and accepts the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In this we join with all those believers who call themselves "Baptists."
