Daniel R. Hyde: Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims

MP3 Available Here

Daniel R. Hyde, pastor of the Oceanside United Reformed Church in Carlsbad/Oceanside, CA, will address the theme of his new book: "Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims".

As Reformation Trust Publishing describes Pastor Hyde's book:

“Who are these guys?” That was the question the teenage Daniel R. Hyde posed to his father when he first encountered “Reformed” believers. With their unique beliefs and practices, these Christians didn’t fit any of the categories in his mind.

Not so many years later, Hyde is now Rev. Daniel R. Hyde, a pastor of a Reformed church. Recognizing that many are on the outside looking in, just as he once was, he wrote Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims to explain what Reformed churches believe and why they structure their life and worship as they do.

In layman’s terms, Rev. Hyde sketches the historical roots of the Reformed churches, their scriptural and confessional basis, their key beliefs, and the ways in which those beliefs are put into practice. The result is a roadmap for those encountering the Reformed world for the first time and a primer for those who want to know more about their Reformed heritage.

Rev. Daniel R. Hyde (M.Div., Westminster Seminary California) was baptized into the Roman Catholic Church, converted in the Foursquare Church, educated at an Assemblies of God liberal arts college, and youth pastored in a non-denominational church. Pastor Hyde was brought to the Reformed Faith while in college and was drawn to it through its reverence, transcendence, and mystery in both theology and worship. He was married to his wife, Karajean, in 1998 and they have a one son, Cyprian. Pastor Hyde planted the Oceanside United Reformed Church in June of 2000.

Cohosting tonight's program is Pastor Drew Eenigenburg of the West Sayville Reformed Bible Church on Suffolk County, Long Island's south shore (see
