Muckamore Church does not merely want to promote a statement of beliefs, but display the transforming power of the gospel through our culture. When you spend some time with us, it is our hope that you witness a community of people committed to helping one another to fulfil God’s calling on our lives. Hebrews 10:24-25 “So let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching”.
Since the summer of 2022, our leadership has been greatly shaped by Ray Ortlund's book 'The Gospel' as we seek to create gospel culture. He states that there are four clear marks of Gospel Culture:
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honour.
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
“Christianity demands that we have enough compassion to learn the questions of our generation."
Francis Schaeffer, 1974
We want the family of God in Muckamore to discover who God is and His way of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God Alone.
We want to encourage fellowship amongst our members. It's important that those who are part of Muckamore truly feel, and act, like brothers and sisters in Christ.
We want the family of God in Muckamore to experience a God who is relational and promises blessings as revealed in Scripture to believers (and their children), received through Salvation and shared in Sacraments.
We are a fellowship that is connected to the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. This form of government emphasises the cooperative character of the Church as reflected the in New Testament.
We are a church that subscribes to the historic and Reformed faith as expressed in The Westminster Confession of Faith, as a faithful summary of biblical teaching and a bond of unity.
