Bringing God’s never-changing Word to His ever-changing world

What we as Reformed Presbyterians Believe

Our Church name - Reformed Presbyterian

Reformed: The reformation of the church during the 1500's resulted in a new emphasis on the sovereignty of God and faith alone for salvation.

Presbyterian: We are called Presbyterian because of our form of Church government. In each congregation we are ruled by Elders, who are also part of the higher courts known as Presbyteries and Synod.

What we believe

The Reformed Presbyterian (Covenanter) Church is founded upon the conviction that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and this belief expresses itself in our doctrine, government and worship

  • That Jesus Christ is Lord of all life, the King and foundation stone of the Church, the Divine Son of God.
  • Everyone is born an enemy of God and is subject to the wrath of God and the punishment of death, both in this life and the life to come.
  • That Jesus Christ having died and risen is the only one who can save men from this punishment.
  • That this salvation is received by turning away from sin, trusting in Christ to save us from its penalty and taking Him as Lord.
  • That it is the duty of Christians enabled by the Holy Spirit to live a life which will bring glory to God.
  • That Jesus Christ is the King of all nations and should be acknowledged as such by every nation. He is coming back to this world to judge every human being and to restore righteousness to this universe.

Where do our Beliefs Come From?

We believe that God has spoken to the human race in the Bible – a perfect, infallible book that teaches us what to believe about God and how he wants us to live. This God-given book is our supreme authority for all of life. We stand in the centre of the stream of evangelical Christianity, believing what orthodox Christians have believed since the first days of the Church.

What’s the Bible’s Central Message?

The Bible teaches that human beings are in rebellion against God and so heading for judgment. But in incredible mercy, God has provided a way of rescue from this horrific fate. He sent his own Son, Jesus Christ, to live a perfect life in our place and to suffer the judgment we deserved. Because of his sacrifice it’s possible for anyone, no matter who they are, to enter into a relationship with God.
