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.
Our Christian Psalms ~ 17

As The Apple Of Your Eye.

Psalm 17 recognises that believers can come into desperate straits. David was in deep waters when he penned this Psalm. He was surrounded by personal attacks and spiritual temptations . He likens himself to a hounded animal that has been brought to bay by a pride of hungry lions; they have stalked him, encircled him, and are now crouching, eyes locked onto his every move, preparing to launch the final assault (v:4, 9-14).

All of us, from time to time, experience discouraging circumstances in our lives. Then we become like the Psalmist who in Psalm 42 said to his soul: “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Some of God's people are prone, by their very character and inner disposition to be more easily discouraged than others. But to be discouraged is wrong, it is not honouring to God Our Father, Christ our Redeemer, or the Spirit our Comforter. The Christian would see that they have no good or valid reason to be discouraged, if they could but view things as they ought. Discouraging circumstances we need to face up to, and deal with, in a Christian manner. Over the next couple of weeks we will notice six things William Bridge had to say about how a Christian can apply the Word of God in order to bear up against discouragement.

Vital Truths - Who Is Jesus Christ?

He is the only REDEEMER of God’s elect. “In the fullness of time, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of children",(Gal. 4: 4-5).



Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honour, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss; he promises life, and pays with death.  But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.
