The chaplaincy has a storied history. Chaplains have traveled the world providing spiritual help to soldiers in peace and war. Some have given the ultimate sacrifice. Today with the advance of liberalism, political correctness, and pluralism things are changing in the Corps. Islam is growing, along with paganism seen in the accommodation of an increasing “wiccan” population. Mormons are now considered as General Protestants and thus have access to every Protestant service. There is a call for tolerance within the Corps of Chaplains, yet intolerance is being directed more and more toward evangelicals. The Chapel is not a church. It fails to meet the marks of a true church. There is little sign of spiritual life, little knowledge of church history, or the Church Confessions, and little understanding of biblical theology.
There are many denominations with churches near these bases; however the Presbyterian and Reformed Community has been absent. We now have one church in Europe and one in Asia, but there is a need for more.
Our vision is to establish vibrant, reformed churches near military communities around the world.
With such churches…
· biblical worship will grow
· Christian disciple making will increase
· evangelism will occur so many will come to living faith in Christ
· Reformed Christians will have access to sound worship, teaching and like-minded fellowship
· we will be better equipped to engage local culture on a non-compromising level
· lasting spiritual fruit will bless Presbyterian and reformed churches around the world
We need a moving of the Holy Spirit to plant Presbyterian and Reformed churches near large military communities worldwide.
