Pastor: Rev. Mike Lineberger

From our Pastor
I am glad that you have chosen to visit our website, thankful for your interest in Linden Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, and delighted to be able to share with you a little about the Lord's flock here. The Linden ARP Church has been a steadfast witness to historic, Reformed, Christianity for ninety five years in Gastonia, NC. We have an appreciation for our history and a concern for the Spiritual vitality which characterizes the outlook of this assembly of believers. With a great sense of gratitude for the legacy that has been bequeathed to us, our eyes are firmly fixed on the hope that is set before us.

Linden ARP Church is committed to the Bible, God's inerrant and infallible word, as the final authority in faith and life, and we view the faithful preaching ( and hearing ) of His word as essential to growth in the Christian life.

We are committed to the Reformed faith, as set forth in the historic Westminister Confession of Faith and Catechisms. "God saves sinners" is the rich motto of the Reformed faith. We are committed to the Great Commission. Yes, God saves sinners but he has appointed means for doing so. "Faith comes by hearing" the apostle Paul said. We are determined to be faithful in doing and supporting the work of evangelism.

We aim to be what God calls us to be: a family-naturally and practically caring for one another in good times and bad. Our goal is to be a loving community of believers in Christ, truly committed to one another.

It is my privilege to serve the Lord here at Linden. My wife and I are originally from Gastonia so it is a privilege to be home again. We invite you to come and worship with us and see if Linden is the place you would like to call your church family and a place you would like to come home to. We will be looking for you!
