This October 1 issue is the beginning of our 84th year of publishing the Standard Bearer. We thank God for His goodness in preserving the magazine for all these years as a “standard” for the Reformed faith and life.

On this Issue The work of reforming the church is always a work of God by His sovereign grace. The church is God’s, and He has determined the marks of the true church. These marks are the preaching of the pure gospel, the proper administration of the sacraments, and the right exercise of Christian discipline.

For this reason, God must reform His church from time to time....
NOTE OF THANKS A word of thanks goes to Torch and Trumpet, organ of the Reformed Fellowship, for including the Standard Bearer in its “Survey. . .An Annotated Guide to Certain Magazines Current Among the Presbyterian and Reformed Churches.” This survey calls attention to our February 15 issue, particularly to four articles appearing therein.

The Standard Bearer will introduce two new features for the coming year. First, we plan to print a number of Rev. Haak’s Reformed Witness Hour sermons from...

This is also a reminder that it is time to place your order for a bound copy of Volume 44 if you do not have a standing order. Write to the Business Office.
Book Club Members. You are reminded that- if you have a change of address, you should notify our Business Manager. A notice of change of address for our Standard Bearer will not be sufficient, due to the fact that we keep a separate file for Book Club members. Hence, when you send in such a change for the Standard Bearer, add a note informing our Business Manager that you are also an RFPA Book Club member.
Our readers probably noticed the omission in the May 1 issue of the Rev. B. Woudenberg’s department, A Cloud of Witnesses. This was not an intentional omission by your editor, but was due to a mistake on the part of the firm which is responsible for our composition-work.
