Originally planning to be a college professor, Pastor Steven Dilday found his heart turned to feeding God’s people after preaching at Liberty & Grace Reformed Church in the winter of 2003. Within a few months, he, his wife, Amanda, and their family had moved from bustling South Jersey to quiet Culpeper, Virginia, and from 2004 until the present, Pastor Dilday has ministered to God’s flock in Warrenton, Virginia. Steven Dilday is a graduate of Whitefield Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Puritan Literature and History. When he isn’t studying and preparing sermons or counseling God’s people, he is busy translating several Latin theological works.
The project nearest his heart is the translation of Matthew Poole’s Synopsis, a sweeping, pivotal commentary on the entire Bible by a man that has been called “Matthew Henry’s, Matthew Henry”. [The Matthew Poole Project website]
It is Steven’s desire to help God’s people know, love, and better understand their Bible, that they might know, love, and better understand their God.
We at Liberty and Grace Reformed Church believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which includes both the bad news that man is dead in trespasses and sin, and therefore unable to attain spiritual life on his own; and the good news that God is able to save by grace (Eph. 2.5) even the chief of sinners by the working of the Holy Spirit in his heart, regenerating and causing him to be born again (John 3.3, 5). Faith in Jesus Christ alone, which is the gift of God, is necessary for salvation and, as “God commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17.30), so Jesus Christ, who died for sinners, “is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him” (Heb. 7.25).
We believe in the purity of worship ordained, commanded and prescribed by God himself, which Scripture contrasts with man-made “will-worship” (Col. 2.23). God has appointed the Lord’s Day as the only holy day to be kept regularly by all, and he has ordained that he will be worshiped daily by individuals and families. Our church believes in the primacy of God’s Word preached and read in public worship, practices exclusive a cappella psalm singing, and celebrates the Lord’s Supper quarterly.
We believe in Presbyterian church government jure divino. Although we are at this time independent, it is our aim to seek and promote godly ecclesiastical affiliation within a presbytery. Constitutionally, we hold to the original 1646 Westminster Confession of Faith, the 1645 Westminster Directory for the Public Worship of God, and the original Westminster Shorter and Larger Catechisms.
