Westminster Confession of Faith

Seal of the ARP churchWhen folks join the fellowship of believers here at First Pres, they are asked this question (among others): Do you accept that the doctrines and principles of the Standards of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church are founded upon the Scriptures? One of the Standards of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church is the Westminster Confession of Faith. This document, published in the mid 17th century by the Westminster Assembly, is a comprehensive statement of the doctrines of faith to which we subscribe.

This year during Ekklesia, we will be exploring the teachings found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, seeking to have a better understanding of what it is that we hold to be true about God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), Creation, Salvation, and more.
