While our church has not been in Reedsburg long, our heritage has deep historic roots. In fact, all protestant denominations sprang from the Protestant Reformation of the 16-17th centuries.
This Reformation was essentially a return to the “Old Paths” of scriptural truth.
It began through the grass-roots efforts of men like Wycliff and Hus; and then continued on a greater-scale through men like Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, until the clouds of medieval darkness were parted and the light of Christ shone once again in Europe.
