Christians scattered here and there who long for something more
substantial in worship.
We live in an age where even the word “preach” is despised.

word was the means God used to raise up churches, beginning in Judea,
Jerusalem, Samaria and all over that part of the world.
What brought about the great Protestant Reformation in Europe? What
did God use in the 1st and 2nd great awakenings
in America? Preaching.
Peter, Paul, Luther, Calvin, Knox, Edwards, Whitefield, Wesley,
Nettleton, Spurgeon – some were also great writers, but primarily they
were preachers and whole nations and continents shook under their
preaching and faith still comes by hearing the word of God in Christ
Our desire at Reibers RBC is that our church and every gospel church
would get back to the faithful preaching of God’s word in every
service and that God’s people be fed and built up in faith hope and
love and that those who are not now Christians would hear and believe
the gospel of Christ.
We invite you to come and worship the Lord with us.
