Pottersville Church is a friendly and caring group of people joined together to worship and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. The word “Reformed” comes from the Protestant Reformation that swept across Europe in the 1500s under the leadership of such men as Martin Luther and John Calvin. Calvin’s reformation at Geneva spread to many countries, including Scotland (where it became the Presbyterian Church) and the Netherlands (where it became our ancestor, the Dutch Reformed Church). The Reformation emphasized salvation through faith alone, the importance of preaching in worship, the sovereignty of God in creation and redemption, and the centrality of the gospel in the life of the church. The Dutch Reformed Church established its first congregation in New Amsterdam in 1628 (now Manhattan, NYC). Although Dutch in origin, the Reformed Church in America has for decades included peoples of many different nationalities in its congregations. As a Reformed Church we are committed to a representative system of church government and are committed to living out the implications of God’s grace in our every day life at home, work and play.
