Vibrant, faithful churches don’t appear out of thin air. In fact, church membership is on the decline in North America. But the RCA believes that churches can and do change. We believe that by the power of the Holy Spirit, God renews individuals and congregations so that they can, in turn, participate in renewing their communities and the world.
Developing a healthy congregational culture takes effort. Loving God and loving others—both within the church and beyond—is a slow, steady process of learning. That learning happens at an individual and a corporate level. But when it does, the transformation is beautiful.
