We welcome you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We hope you will be encouraged and edified, having heard Biblical

truth in love.


Great Basin RP is a member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of

North America, one of the oldest denominations in the United States.

We are committed to the doctrines of Scripture and the formation of

loving community as a necessary fruit of the Gospel.


In light of the above, we believe that the most comprehensive and accurate summary of biblical teaching is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, together with the Westminster Larger and

Shorter Catechisms. These documents were completed in 1647 as a summary of Christian belief and practice, with the desired intention of helping Christ’s church become unified in doctrine, government, and worship (John 17:11). In addition to the Westminster Standards, we also maintain the Testimony of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of

North America, which is our denomination’s own continuing and contemporary application of the Word of God to our current culture and context.

This Week’s Doctrinal Meditation

I believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,

His only-begotten Son, our Lord:

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended into hell;

the third day He rose from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,

and sits at the right hand of

God the Father Almighty;

from there He shall come to judge

the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy, catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.


-The Apostle’s Creed
















From the Pastor’s Study

ANOTHER fundamental doctrine of the gospel and of the evangelical, Protestant Church, is that of justification by faith. It relates to the question how a man comes into possession of the great blessings of the redemption accomplished by Christ. No truth can be of greater importance than the truth which tells him how he may {44} be just before God, or, in other words, what he must do to be saved. The gospel answer is clear as a sunbeam, and it comes from the lips of inspired apostles: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” It comes from Christ Himself: “Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out.” That it is effective is testified to by all the apostles: “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12). “Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1).

And yet this clearly-revealed truth became darkened and overloaded with so much error during the centuries before the Reformation, that it was scarcely understood by one in a thou- sand. Bodily seif-inflictions, penances, going into cloisters away from the outside world, paying money to erect shrines and altars to the saints and the Virgin,—these were some of the ways by which men were to obtain the favor of God and the peace of their consciences. And when in the sixteenth century this system of man had reached its pinnacle, when salvation was literally sold for money by traveling monks (a Tetzel, in Germany, for instance), God raised up men in different coun- tries of Europe to re-announce {45} the simple teachings of God’s Holy Word on this subject. – Benjamin Schneck
