We don’t pretend to be perfect but then who of us is!
Our aim is to do and be the best we can and to live out our lives to the Glory of God and our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The Presbyterian Church holds that “the Word of God as set forth in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments is the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and the supreme standard of the Church.”
The Presbyterian form of Christian faith is best described as ‘Reformed’ with its strong emphasis on the Sovereignty of God, the Kingship of Christ and the authority of the Bible.
Irish Presbyterianism had its origins in Scottish migrations to Ulster in the early seventeenth century.
The word ‘Presbyterian’ describes the form of the Church government which emphasises the individual and corporate responsibility of members. Ministers, Elders and members share in the organising and running of every aspect of the Church’s work.
The preaching of the Word of God is central to Presbyterian worship services and is set within a mixture of prayer and praise. There is no fixed liturgy in Presbyterian services of worship. Prayers and hymns, psalms and paraphrases, Scripture readings and sermons are adapted to the needs of the occasion.
The best test of the Presbyterian Church and its members lies in what their faith compels them to do for others, not just what has been done for them as individuals.
