The Mission of the Mid-Atlantic Reformation Society, 2018 and Beyond

2/21/18 by Jim Mogel

In God’s providence, the reformation sparked by Martin Luther in 1517 marches on! The work of the Mid-Atlantic Reformation Society (MARS) centers on the application of Scripture to all areas of life, to the glory of Jesus Christ and the advancement of His Kingdom.  In practical terms, we apply this through the principles behind our motto: “Think and Reform”.  In addition to teaching the scriptural truths applied to the issues of the day, we seek to foster effective action and Godly cooperation within the Body of Christ to the end that individuals, families, churches, and the culture at large, including the civil government, are conformed to purposes established for them by God.  This is in essence the Great Commission, and reformation in its true sense.

We recognize that the church at large has been sidetracked by a variety of forces. Pietism and other theological aberrations play a large part in this. Many pastors and leaders express reluctance or difficulty in dealing with various cultural or civil issues, and MARS stands ready and eager to assist in these areas and to build relationships based on cooperative efforts.  In most cases this has been an area of disinterest and limited success.  We, therefore, encourage believers who wish to advance reformation to seek out churches where the application of God’s Word to all areas of life is desired and pursued.  We also encourage believers who cannot locate such an assembly to seek out qualified church leaders and pastors to form new churches.  To this end MARS has been instrumental in the establishment of a thriving local church, equipping eager Christians to pursue the Great Commission with the full-orbed Gospel to the end that God be glorified in all spheres of life.  Our work is ongoing to foster growth of more such works and Godly cooperation between them.

The civil sphere, much neglected by the church for too many years, begs for reformation. MARS has addressed many aspects of how this reformation can take place through strongly biblical topical presentations.  These presentations have been part of our regular local meetings as well as by invitation to various civic events and Christian groups.  In an effort to expand our scope of influence, we are promoting increased availability of our speakers to interested groups.  We seek to be a valuable resource to those needing solutions to the problems and issues facing society from all angles.  MARS offers a wide range of topics covering economics, politics, missions, theology, and many more contemporary issues.

MARS has sponsored numerous conferences with guest speakers on various topics and themes. In 2017 we sponsored our first “Future of Christendom” conference in Reading, PA, in recognition of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.  Our goal was to provide an array of competent speakers who would challenge attendees to take action, and who would be available for personal interaction throughout the conference.  Attendees were from across the US and a number from around the world. The conference was blessed beyond our efforts and abilities, and based on very positive feedback we are continuing with the format for 2018 and beyond.  The goal is two-fold; first, to provide effective and informative lectures, and second to allow like-minded people to meet and interact face to face.
