Our core mission is to facilitate self- directed Biblical learning and the application of spiritual truth. Residential stays are in 1 week increments with communal meals as a means of true Christian fellowship. As part of the registration process we will attempt to find each guest’s specific need or interest so we can provide customized recommendations for study and follow-up discussions. For those with no known specific need or interest, a general theme will be given for each week.
Monday – What are the key doctrines that are critical to the Christian faith? What are the doctrines that we can agree to disagree on?
Tuesday – Creation, Sin & Guilt
Wednesday – Christ as one’s only hope of fixing the sin & guilt problem
Thursday – Life after death
Friday – Review of what is essential and what is desired but not essential. Heresy vs. Error, Gray Areas, Understanding Terms.
To aid our guests in sanctification by encouraging humble submission to the one true God as revealed in His Scriptures
“I was for decades an immature Christian seeking comfort in the fire insurance policy I thought I purchased with my faith. Testing my beliefs was stressful so I didn’t. Stumbling into an understanding of reformed theology amazed me. The questions were stressful, but the revelations of truth gave me a freedom and peace where previously I had only a degree of presumptive certainty. The truth of God, beyond a shallow understanding of Christ’s redemptive work, progressively gave me more than I thought possible in this life. I want to see Brothers & Sisters in Christ learning, sharing & applying truth with each other for our mutual benefit and ultimately for the glory of God, our redeemer.”

Meaning: Always Reforming
Semper Reformanda (Latin) was a motto of the Reformation of the 1500s which intended to reform the church back to to Biblical truth especially as revealed by Jesus Christ and outlined by the Apostle Paul. This is necessary now, as then, because individuals and institutions often err and need to reform back to foundational truth.
