Welcome to Our Site!
Welcome to the website of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Australia. We are a Presbyterian church, constituted as several congregations along the east coast of Australia, whose aim is to faithfully proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, in the tradition of the Protestant Reformation. We believe the truth of the Holy Bible as expressed in the Westminister Confessional Standards as originally adopted by the Reformed Church of Scotland.
Seeing Christ In The Psalms #2 - Principles Of Interpretation

As Reformed believers, we need to approach the Psalms, as we would any other part of Scripture, with sound historical/ grammatical/ spiritual principles of interpretation. That will keep us in the objective truth as it is in Jesus. It is important that we do not resort to spiritualizing and allegorizing the Psalms. That would be to “insert” a Christ of our own imagination into the Psalms. Nevertheless, that every Psalm has some relationship to Christ is the teaching of our Lord himself – Luke 24:26-27, 44-47. The evidence for this position is compelling. Here is a list of the direct New Testament quotes from the Psalms with reference to Christ:

John Knox, & Godís Will Concerning Sinners
It is a common sentiment in evangelical preaching, that God the Father wills that each and every sinner upon earth should believe in Christ as his or her own Saviour.
Vital Truths - Expect Health, Wealth & Happiness?

Should Christians expect health, wealth and happiness in this life? Is that what God promises them?

That is the way some professing Christians talk. But it is not true to the Bible or experience.



Church growth books and manuals flood the market.  Surprisingly few address internal growth through the Holy Spirit sovereignly blessing the raising of children in covenantal truth.  Yet, historically, Reformed Christians have acknowledged that their most solid, genuine church growth has been through the conversion of youth reared in the church.
