Reformed Church of Hamilton

Welcome to the Reformed Church of Hamilton

RCNZ HamiltonWe come together to worship our Lord and Saviour twice every Sunday at 10.30am and 5.00 pm. You are most welcome to join us.

For us the Bible is the written revelation of God's Word, that reveals all that we need to know unto salvation and life. We confess and believe that it bears witness to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only Savior and hope for sinners.

We are Reformed in our faith and practice according to the Scriptures as summarized during the sixteenth century Protestant Reformation the Three Forms of Unity: Belgic Confession (1561), Heidelberg Catechism (1563) and Canons of Dort (1619) and in the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646).We believe that we come into a saving relationship with God only because of His gracious work in our hearts and therefore He deserves our praise in every area of life.

We are a Church belonging to the one holy universal and apostolic Church instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ for the ministry of the Word (preaching of the Law and the Gospel), the ministry of the sacraments (Baptism and the Lord's Supper), and the shepherding of God's people by the pastors and elders. As a historic Christian Church we hold dear and profess the Apostles' Creed , the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We are a member congregation of the Reformed Churches of New Zealand (RCNZ), a denomination established in 1951 that has now 22 congregations nationally.

We were organised in Hamilton in 1953 with around 15 families and have grown to 71 families.
