    Looking for a reformed Church in Akron Ohio Area

    My wife and I have been church hopping lately. We are trying to find a good reformed church in the Akron Ohio area.

    We have tried Heritage Reformed Baptist and are currently trying Faith Bible in Canton. Both have many positive areas but I'm not convinced that either is the church God is calling us to.

    Are there any belonging to these boards, in my area, that know if any other reformed churches within a reasonably distance?

    There is Faith PCA in Akron, OH.

    There is also Zion PCA in Winesburg.

    Both are good Reformed churches. I know the congregation of Faith (the current pastor arrived after I left Ohio, but I hear very encouraging things about his ministry. The pastor of Zion is a close friend.

    "The heart is the main thing in true religion...It is the hinge and turning-point in the condition of man's soul. If the heart is alive to God and quickened by the Spirit, the man is a living Christian. If the heart is dead and has not the Spirit, the man is dead before God." (J.C. Ryle)

    Thank you Fred. I will investigate their web pages and will probably visit Faith, it's only about 7 miles from me.

    Zion is a little further but I will have a look.

    Jeff,
    I will second what Fred said. It may be self-serving, since I am that pastor. I look forward to meeting you next sabbath.

    Nate,
    Yes there RPCNA work came out of a church that Faith planted some years ago (now called Redeemer PCA.) Some good folks there, but a greater travel from Canton.

    Pastor Mark - thank you for taking the time to invite me to your church. I've been looking at your website and plan on listening to a few of your sermons before coming to visit. We will, Lord willing, be there this Sunday.

    My wife and I are in Akron, only about 7 miles from your church, we've been going to Faith in Canton for 8 weeks. We like much of what we see there but are not convinced that it is where the Lord wants us to be now.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
