Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.
When many Christians seem obsessed with "the latest" in Christian living, worship, and church life, we at CRPC seek to walk in the "old path" of what we like to call "Classic Christianity". We do this not simply to be old-fashioned or reactionary, but because we believe that certain "old path" really are better than many of their modern-day substitutes. Unlike a fad which is "here today; gone tomorrow", a classic is tried and true, something which has proved its value over time. So instead of the latest Christian novelties, we are committed to a ministry deeply rooted in the Gospel of Christ and promoting the ordinary means of grace to which the Church has been committed -- and through which she has prospered -- from her earliest days (Acts 2:42). Because of their doctrinal and musical excellence and because they underscore our unity with God's covenant people through the ages, we also use classic expressions of Christian faith and worship. C. S. Lewis said, "Whatever is not eternal, is eternally out of date." Because it is grounded on God's unchanging Word and deals with such eternal matters as God and man, life and death, heaven and hell, we believe that "Classic Christianity" is always relevant and so, always "contemporary," in the best sense of that word.
