Why are we called Coram Deo Reformation Church?
Coram Deo is Latin for “Before the Face of God.” Our name expresses
our prayer that we might live all of our lives consciously and intentionally
pleasing the Lord (Ephesians 5:10).
This means that not only do we want to be conscious and intentional in pleasing God in
our worship, but that we order our lives around the will of God as He has revealed in His word.
We have to confess, of course, that we are a long way from living and worshipping like this
perfectly. That’s why God calls us to hear His Word proclaimed through preaching each week.
Romans 10:17 - "So faith comes by hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ."
It is the bread of life for our souls! He confirms the gospel in the sacraments and by them
nourishes us unto eternal life. He sends us with His blessing each week as we intend to live
our lives, “Before the face of God!”
