We are a group of Christians who recognize that God, in His love, mercy, and infinite wisdom has not only provided the means of forgiveness through His Son Jesus Christ, but has also provided, in the Old and New Testaments, all necessary directions and instructions for a just, happy, and productive society.

MARS Board Member Bob Salzman Now Home with the Lord


With great sadness we pass along the news of the passing of one of our MARS board members, Dr. Bob Salzman.  Bob entered the presence of our Savior yesterday, Friday, Jan. 22nd, as a result of a heart attack.  We rejoice in Bob's eternal salvation, yet feel great loss to ourselves at his passing.

We will greatly miss Bob's friendship and fellowship, as well as his vast knowledge and experience, and wise insights and advice as a board member.  A full obituary is posted here.

Bob served the Lord for nearly 50 years as a pastor, and a very prominent figure in founding the Christian School movement in the 1970's and 1980's.  He founded many schools and advanced Christian education, especially in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Canada.  As a pastor, he served in the Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship Church, the Bible Fellowship Church of Walnutport, and the Edson Baptist Church of Edson, Alberta Canada. Bob served as a missionary to Canada, and worked with the Fellowship  of Evangelical Baptist Churches of Canada, teaching at the Winnipeg Bible College and Seminary.

Bob was also the founder and CEO of Bridgewater Academy, providing home school curricula, and the Executive Director of the Essential Learning Institute.  Bob provided consulting services to 600 schools, as well as being a speaker and presenter at educational conferences.  He was also the President of the National Association of Private Schools.

Bob leaves behind his wife Patti, six children, and many grandchildren.  Please pray for them in this difficult time.

Greetings friends of The Mid-Atlantic Reformation Society


We will be kicking off our 2016 lecture series  on January 19th with a very timely presentation:

John Piper - (RINO) Reformed In Name Only

John Piper is regarded as a primary modern-day spokesman for Reformed theology.

How do his recent comments on the important subject of self defense and the use of firearms square with the Bible, and with Reformed theology?

A Christian View of War - Part 2

From our latest lecture...





Third Tuesday Lecture Series...

Why War: A Christian View of War

Part 2

For our "Third Tuesday" Lecture Series Tuesday,
August 18th

What is a "just war"?

What is an "unjust war"?

How do we judge whether our country is fighting a just or unjust war?

Do we think biblically on this subject, or are our thoughts based on tradition, habit, or politics?  Sharpen your thinking through this presentation by Joel Saint.

Part 1 will be briefly reviewed; this month's presentation will be complete in itself if you missed last month.
