Worship in Spirit and Truth
The Liturgy, Standards, and Practice of Seventh Reformed Church
Authored by Tim J.R. Trumper

“Worship in Spirit and Truth” is the liturgy, standards, and practice of Seventh Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is published to mark the 125th anniversary of the church’s founding.

Originally a congregation of the Reformed Church in America, Seventh Reformed Church has been independent since 1995. Sometimes the leadership is asked, “What sort of Reformed church is Seventh Reformed?” The answer is all here in her liturgy, standards, and practical documents. These are both ecumenical and Reformed and ancient and modern, and connect Seventh Reformed Church to the history and catholicity of the Christian church as well as to the Reformed tradition in particular.

While specific to the worship and life of Seventh Reformed Church, “Worship in Spirit and in Truth” provides an example of ongoing reformation according to God’s Word, emphasizing not only order but ardor. As far as is known, this is the first liturgy book to include the World Reformed Fellowship’s recent Statement of Faith. Also useful for general study is the inclusion of a Glossary to aid understanding of the historical and theological terms used throughout. “Worship in Spirit and Truth” is, then, a useful resource for personal study as well as an example of worship in the Reformed tradition.

Since 1890, Seventh Reformed Church has been a fixture on the Northwest side of Grand Rapids. In celebrating her 125 years, ministers, members, and missionaries have combined to tell of God’s grace to the church family, and how, in light of it, she has been blessed in ways beyond anything her founders could have envisioned.

Readers can gain glimpses of the West Side of old, unprecedented access to the life of Seventh Reformed Church, and read of:

*The good news of Jesus Christ.
*The content of the Reformed faith.
*The work of church revitalization.
*The spread of the gospel internationally.
