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.
 
Knox and Church Order
One of the primary documents of the Scottish Reformation is The First Book of Discipline. It is a document for the ordering of the life of the Reformed Church in Scotland drawn up at the dawn of the reformation in Scotland. This document, together with The Book of Common Order, formed the original Church Order of the Reformed Church of Scotland in the days of John Knox. The First Book of Discipline was the work of five other Scots’ reformers in addition to John Knox. Knox also with the help of others in Frankfurt compiled The Book of Common Order. These documents and the times in which they were written also show us the close connection especially between the Reformed Church of Scotland and that of France and Geneva.  This is seen in the close contact and communication between those Churches on the matter not only on the ordering of the Church, but also all matters of doctrine, worship and government.

Consider

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.
