Who We Are
We are a Reformed and Presbyterian Church in West Bend, Wisconsin, adhering to the original Westminster Confession of Faith and Standards with its uniformity in doctrine, worship and government. Although not yet an official congregation of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, we are members of other Free Presbyterian congregations, and gather on the Lord’s Day for Public worship in the same way that other Free Presbyterian Congregations do.
The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland is a mainline descendant of the historic Church of Scotland of the Reformation formed in 1893. Our church has congregations on 5 continents.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that we have a faithful translation in the Authorized (King James) Version. We believe that the Westminster Confession of Faith is an accurate statement of the main doctrines of the Bible.
Our reformed worship is derived from the example of the church of the New Testament with nothing added. So we use no musical instruments, and we sing only psalms. Our service is centered around prayer, praise (psalms), and explanation of the Bible (preaching). See what to expect when attending our services.
Below is a brief summary of what we believe. The Free Presbyterian Church is Reformed in Doctrine, Worship and Practice.
- Scripture. The Bible is the fully inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God, and therefore the only supreme rule for faith and life.
- God. There is one God, who decreed all things from eternity, created the entire universe in six days, and governs the whole creation continually.
- Trinity. This one God exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Man. Man was originally created in the image of God, and his main duty in life is to know, love, glorify and enjoy God.
- Sin. All fell with Adam in his first transgression. All mankind is guilty of sin (which is disobeying God’s law), and deserves to be punished in hell for ever.
- Jesus Christ. God in His mercy sent His only begotten Son to be the Saviour of sinners. By taking human nature into union with His divine Person, Jesus Christ is both God and man. He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a perfectly sinless life, died on the cross, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven.
- Atonement. When Jesus Christ died on the cross, He was punished in the place of His people for their sins, as the only way to satisfy divine justice.
- Faith. Those who trust in Christ alone for the forgiveness of their sins, and repent, are accepted by God and will go to heaven. No one can be saved in any other way.
- The Holy Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit can bring people to faith and repentance, which He does when He regenerates them into spiritual life.
- The Second Coming. Jesus will return bodily at the Day of Judgment, when everyone who died will rise again. Those who trusted Him for salvation will go to heaven with Him forever, but the rest will be cast into hell to endure conscious torment forever.
