WHO IS REFORMED MEDIA?
Reformed Media, LLC officially began in 2015 as a design and technology company that provides professional online tools, consultation, and service that help ministries grow without breaking the budget.
Our vision is to see ministries expand their outreach and impact in their community with Gospel outreach.
The mission of Reformed Media, LLC is to partner with churches and ministries to strengthen their digital presence through technology and media by helping them present their ministry more effectively in the eyes of visitors, connect and engage with community, and reach out further into their community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
WHAT IS REFORMATION SITES?
We built Reformation Sites as a website platform for churches, schools, ministries, and authors that provides a beautiful and modern design, tons of features, premium hosting, helpful support, and pricing that fits into most budgets.
Hello, I'm Eric Pastorek, the founder and developer of Reformation Sites. It's been my joy to work with churches, ministries, schools, and authors since 2005 on their website outreach when I first saw the potential of a resource like this for ministries online.
My motivation for the work of Reformed Media and Reformation Sites is to see God glorified in worship as the covenant community grows and impacts the world.
The hymn writer Isaac Watts expresses this best in his famous hymn How Sweet and Aweful. Watts writes, "We long to see thy churches full, That all the chosen race. May, with one voice and heart and soul, Sing thy redeeming grace."
I love the Reformed community and want to see its churches full of people being built up in grace, edified by solid Biblical teaching, being sent out to minister the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in turn, bringing praise to the King of Glory. That's why I started Reformed Media, and developed Reformation Sites.

Statement of Faith
What makes Reformed Media, LLC different from most Christian tech companies is our goal of helping ministries grow within what is known as the Reformed (and/or reforming) community. While we do recognize and acknowledge that there are other faithful ministries fulfilling the Great Commission of the Gospel of grace, we're not shy in saying that we specialize in working with Reformed Baptist, Presbyterian, Reformed, and/or Calvinistic ministries.
Furthermore, while there are many Biblical Creeds and Confessions which came out of the Reformation, our basic statement of faith can be summarized by the Five Solas of the Reformation reaffirmed by the Cambridge Declaration (simplified) below:
We reaffirm the inerrant Scripture to be the sole source of written divine revelation, which alone can bind the conscience. The Bible alone teaches all that is necessary for our salvation from sin and is the standard by which all Christian behavior must be measured.
We deny that any creed, council or individual may bind a Christian’s conscience, that the Holy Spirit speaks independently of or contrary to what is set forth in the Bible, or that personal spiritual experience can ever be a vehicle of revelation.
We reaffirm that our salvation is accomplished by the mediatorial work of the historical Christ alone. His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our justification and reconciliation to the Father.
We deny that the gospel is preached if Christ’s substitutionary work is not declared and faith in Christ and his work is not solicited.
We reaffirm that in salvation we are rescued from God’s wrath by his grace alone. It is the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit that brings us to Christ by releasing us from our bondage to sin and raising us from spiritual death to spiritual life.
We deny that salvation is in any sense a human work. Human methods, techniques, or strategies by themselves cannot accomplish this transformation. Faith is not produced by our unregenerate human nature.
We reaffirm that justification is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. In justification Christ’s righteousness is imputed to us as the only possible satisfaction of God’s perfect justice.
We deny that justification rests on any merit to be found in us, or upon the grounds of an infusion of Christ’s righteousness in us, or that an institution claiming to be a church that denies or condemns sola fide can be recognized as a legitimate church.
Soli Deo Gloria
We reaffirm that because salvation is of God and has been accomplished by God, it is for God’s glory and that we must glorify him always. We must live our entire lives before the face of God, under the authority of God and for his glory alone.
We deny that we can properly glorify God if our worship is confused with entertainment, if we neglect either Law or Gospel in our preaching, or if self-improvement, self-esteem or self-fulfillment is allowed to become alternatives to the Gospel.
