Who We Are

Armor Bible Church is a Reformed congregation in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. We hold to the essential tenets of the Reformed faith as expressed in the Westminster Standards. We believe these standards to be authentic and reliable expositions of what Scripture teaches.

Our Goal

To glorify and enjoy God as we seek the advancement of Christ’s kingdom of grace.

Our Vision

Armor Bible Church is seeking to build a sustainable Christian community in Orchard Park, NY. This we will do by establishing faithful worship of God, training our children in the faith, bringing people to church and teaching them to be disciples of Jesus Christ, providing leadership and service to our community, and living as faithful Christians in our homes, at church, and in society. 

Worship. Build. Engage. Advance.

Mission Statement

The mission of Armor Bible Church is to worship the One True God according to His Word, to build up stable Christian homes, and to engage the culture with the Truth of the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit, all for God’s glory and the advancement of Christ’s kingdom of grace.

Core Beliefs

Worship the one true God according to His Word.

  1. We value worship that is firmly grounded in and regulated by the truth revealed in Scripture.
  2. We value the Lord’s Day as a day set apart for God’s purpose and delight. 
  3. We value the ordinary means of grace: The reading and preaching of God’s Word, prayer, and the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  4. We value preaching and teaching with theological precision, based on careful biblical exegesis, with faithful adherence to the system of doctrine expressed in the Westminster Standards. 
  5. We value the singing of the Word of God through the Psalms and biblically-based hymns.

Build up stable Christian homes.

  1. We value the building up of Christian households, according to the Biblical design, as the basic unit of the church and society.
  2. We value private, family, and corporate worship of God which emphasizes the ordinary means of grace. These God has instituted to build up Christians in the faith. 
  3. We value relationships characterized by the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). 
  4. We value diligently adding to our faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection, and love so that we might be effective, fruitful, and never fall (2 Peter 1:5-11).

  2. We value thoughtful engagement with the prevalent ideologies of our culture.
  3. We value communicating the truth of God’s Word in our daily lives and interactions.
