Christian Church of Orlando was born on April 2006 when Pastor Roberto Boselli (founder) and his family start to get together in Orlando area. After one year, as the Church grew, God gave them an opportunity to buy a building in the same area so that they would have a permanent home in which to meet. Since then, God has been guiding us to form a group of people committed to live meaningful lives with Jesus Christ.
On the year of 2010 Pastor Roberto Boselli and the Leadership team started to identify with the Historic Reformed stream of faith. The more they studied the Bible, Theology and Church History the more they understood about Justification by Faith Alone - The sole ground of our justification is the merit of Jesus Christ alone. On the year of 2013 the church name was changed to "Reformed Christian Church of Orlando”.
Reformed Theology is God-Centered and the structure of the biblical Covenant of Grace is the framework for this theology. We believe Reformed doctrine is historic Christianity in its emphasis upon the sovereignty of God and trustworthiness of the Bible. As a Church, we strongly affirms the unique, infallible, and inerrant authority of the Bible and the distinctive doctrines of the Westminster Standards and Reformed tradition. Among them the 5 “Solas” of the Reformation and the doctrines of grace.
On June 2017, God started another move in our lives as we were introduced to the “Bible Presbyterian Church - BPC”. For the next few months we were able to get together with the Florida Leadership to culminate on what we, as a Church, were praying for several years; be part of a solid biblical denomination within USA.
On June 2018 Reformed Christian Church of Orlando was officially received by the BPC-Florida Presbytery. BPC was founded with the word “Bible” in its name to emphasize the importance of getting back to the Bible and of standing firm for the Word of God.
Succession is invariably difficult and arduous, but in recent years the planning and preparation for such succession in our midst has been extremely peaceful and graceful. The Holy Spirit led the whole process and on November 2019, Pastor Adriano Silva received his ministerial ordination and officially took over the pastoral care of the church. Roberto Boselli became Pastor Emeritus and so a new stage has began in this story written by God, to whom we give all the honor, praise and eternal gratitude.
We are a confessional church, holding to the Westminster Standards as our subordinate standards. The Bible is our only rule of faith and practice. With John, the Apostle, we echo this familiar testimony to Christ, "For the Word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ." Rev.1:9
Our mission is to glorify God and let His name be known by anyone willing to find life in Jesus and our vision stresses reformation and revival both within the Church and throughout the world. We seek our deepest delight in Jesus Christ and acknowledge that we can do nothing apart from him.
Specifically, we encourage people to focus on their families and maintain them in a Christ-centered way. This is essential to implement God’s plan for all of us.
We have been privileged to see many families joining together as one body and family drawn “...from every nation, from all tribes, and peoples and languages.” Rev. 7:9
In short, we exist in order to accomplish the Great Commission to make disciples through the means Christ ordained: The preaching of the Word and the administration of the Sacraments.
We give all glory and honor to God for his continued blessing on this local congregation of his kingdom.
Soli Deo Gloria
