Rev. Miersma is pastor of the Protestant Reformed Church of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. During the period of more than a decade of its existence since its organization, our Edmonton congregation has been without a church building of its own.

Rev. denHartog is pastor of the Protestant Reformed Church of Randolph, Wisconsin. I have taken my subject for this article from a verse found in Ephesians 3.

I urge the reader of this article to turn to his Bible and read the whole prayer of the apostle in Ephesians 3:14-21 before proceeding to read this article. What great petitions...

Prof. Hanko is professor of Church History and New Testament in the Protestant Reformed Seminary. One of the great wonders of salvation is that God does not save a mass of people; He saves a church, the body of Christ.

In the goodness of the risen and reigning Christ, Protestant Reformed Christians in North America are able to educate their children in Christian schools yet another year. Under the governments of the United States and Canada, we have freedom to instruct our children according to the demands of the covenant.

This is injustice. The financial hardship caused by...

Prof. Decker is professor of Practical Theology in the Protestant Reformed Seminary. “For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.” Psalm 48:14 In this Psalm the poet extols the beauty and strength of Mount Zion, God’s church. Zion is the place where God dwells in covenant fellowship with His people. It is the city of God, the great King. It is the place where God is known, loved, praised, and worshiped. The marvelous beauty of Zion is the fact that God, in all His glory, is revealed there in His...
