There must be a difference in the definition of the word "Reformed" somewhere because some of the several churches that resulted in a search I did in my area are questionable to being what I call "Reformed", i.e., adhering to one of the recognized Reformed confessions, holding at least somewhat to the traditional Regulative Principle of Worship, etc. for example:
  • Presbyterian = Westminster Confession
  • Congregational = Savoy Declaration
  • Baptist = Baptist London Confession
  • Continental = Belgic Confession

As in every case, "Seeker Beware"... each individual congregation MUST be scrutinized personally as to its doctrine, worship and practice. The name on the sign is no guarantee of what is on the inside! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

In His grace,

Yep, I would approach with caution, one of the churches listed in my area (less than a mile from my house and the church I grew up in) is certainly not reformed, last time I went there the visiting "evangelist" said "that's right I'm here to talk you into getting saved" This was just after he read John 3:1-7 then "preached" for a minute then read John 3:9-21. Yep he completely skipped John 3:8. I wanted to tear my clothes and run out. Moral of this BE CAUTIOUS

While Pilgrim gave some good advice, we should as he put it "seeker beware".
However, I believe the following warning given by 9Marks, basically covers what he stated.

A church’s appearance in the Church Search tool should not be viewed as an endorsement by 9Marks.

Does anyone know what this means?

"plenary verbal inspiration of Scripture and all affirmations/denials of T4G."?

It would be helpful to know the source or at least the context. grin

1. "plenary verbal inspiration" is usually phrased as "verbal plenary inspiration". Simply defined it means that every word (not just the overarching ideas or concepts) was written by the directing influence and superintendence of the Spirit of God. Thus the Bible is inerrant, infallible and divinely authoritative.

Some helpful articles can be found here:
- The Doctrine of Inspiration by G.H. Hospers
- The Inspiration and Authority of Holy Scripture by Herman Ridderbos
- Freedom and Authority by J.I. Packer
- What is the Word of God? by Louis Berkhof
- Inspiration of the Bible theopedia article

2. T4G probably stands for "Together for the Gospel". This is a questionable group that holds conferences biennially with various speakers and topics. Some of the past speakers are not truly Reformed and are directly involved in the "New Calvinism" movement.
