What we believe
Our Mission and Distinctives
The Recon Tavern is grounded in the comprehensive gospel of the kingdom and exists to equip the church for the building up of Christian Civilization according to the law of God.
Distinctively, we are theologically reformed, postmillennial in eschatology, presuppositional in epistemology, covenantal in metaphysics, and theonomic in relation to the law-word of God.
As redeemed servants of God serving in the Kingdom of God, we seek to reconstruct every area of life in the name of the risen Christ, Jesus our Lord and Savior.
