Who We Are

Ponds Reformed Church has served the Oakland community in the name of Christ since 1710. Today, we are a part of the Reformed Church of America, a fellowship of nearly 1,000 local churches in the US and Canada that has the distinction of being the oldest Protestant denomination in North America with a continuing ministry. The Dutch immigrants who colonized “New Amsterdam” (now New York City) in 1628 brought their churches with them, products of the 16th century Reformation that sought to reform their Church according to the word of God. Confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of the world, we share the theological beliefs and form a government characteristic of Presbyterian churches. We are a community of faith with a diversity of Christian traditions represented in our members’ backgrounds.
