This past weekend, our congregation was approved by the Presbytery of the Southeast, OPC, as a particular congregation. We have been independent since our formation 4 1/2 years ago, but are finally in a denominational home! Praise God for seeing us through!

Congratulations!

For some reason, I misread your title as "Approved for Affliction." I thought that you didn't really need approval to be afflicted... then read it again. :)

Congratulations on your acceptance into that fine body. May you serve them, and be served by them, well.

Praise God! And thank you for posting this! I may actually be moving to Arden, NC in a couple of months! I'm excited to hear that there is a church there!

Congratulations. This will give you accountability and a stable platform in which to live covenant community.

In fact, it is worth summoning the bananas in celebration...

Though exuberant, these are reformed bananas, and they adore a solid soteriology, covenant community, the historic confessions, a spiritual view of the sacraments, church discipline and the regulative principle:

Regulative Principle??? Where does the Bible give positive sanction to the banana happy dance as an element of worship? Are you sure that you haven't been reading Dr. Frame on worship? :lol:

On the point of the post . . . CONGRATS!!! The presence of an OP or PCA congregation is always a cause for rejoicing in my (Baptist) book!

The dancing bananas understand they are quite free to rejoice at the particular church's formal affiliation with a solid reformed denomination because the occasion is not, in itself, an ordinance of public (or private) worship.

Rather, they understand this to be an occasion of "festive exuberance" (where all sorts of things not expressly forbidden are allowed).

Privately, the dancing bananas acknowledge caution toward the present
theology and writings of said theologian as well, but will very carefully and charitably do so... and without a lot of exuberance.
