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.
 
A History of Reformed (Presbyterian) Christian Education
Rev Chris Coleborn

The Reformed Churches of Continental Europe and Scotland and England spoke of the Christian education of the youth of the Church. What did they mean by this qualification of the education of their covenant youth? They meant this: nothing less than the teaching of human knowledge within the context of God-centred Christianity. They did not mean schools only for the teaching of the Bible as such. Nor did they mean the teaching of human knowledge with some Christianity taught as an adjunct to that knowledge. Rather, they meant a study of human knowledge that was based upon, seen in the light of, and fully integrated with Divine knowledge. This perspective on knowledge, they believed, would equip students with the true tools of learning so they would be, as much as humanly possible, prepared for all that is to be faced in life and death.

Vital Truths - Salvation! Who Needs It?

If what the Bible says is true (and it is), then we all do.  The greatest, most pressing need we sinners have is to escape the wrath and curse of God due to us for our sins. Surely, to people like us, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of sinners would be the most important person! Finding salvation would be our most pressing concern - wouldn’t it?

So why do so few of us take this seriously?

Jesus, The Healer Of Satan's Woes
Mark 9:14-29

Jesus performed many wondrous miracles during His earthly ministry. The gospel of Mark especially records His power against Satan and the demons. In fact, there are nine instances of Jesus casting out demons in this gospel. The episode we consider in this article occurred immediately after Jesus came back down from the Mount of Transfiguration, with Peter, James and John.

Consider

God or Grief?

What accounts for the global financial crisis and the stress we are experiencing?

Is the problem financial, or could it be spiritual?

Materialism and greed have impoverished us. We are driven, dissatisfied and self-centred. By ignoring God, we have become slaves to a futile pursuit of “happiness”.

God tells us that the love of money is the root of all evil. What profit is it if we gain the whole world yet lose our own souls? We urge our leaders and fellow Australians to consider these things.

To return to the true God and Jesus Christ His Son, who alone can give meaning, direction and contentment to our lives; that is our great need (Jeremiah 2:11-13, Matthew 16:24-27).
