The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church is a conservative, evangelical denomination which holds to the great truths of the Christian faith as revealed in Holy Scripture.  The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church adheres to the Westminster Standards, historic doctrinal statements which emphasize the following:

GOD IS THE SOVEREIGN CREATOR and ruler of the universe.

JESUS CHRIST is the Son of God, the only Saviour and Lord of man.

THE HOLY SPIRIT is the initiator and enabler for the Christian life.

THE BIBLE is the infallible Word of God, the only rule of faith and practice and without error in all that it teaches.

SALVATION is by God’s grace, freely given through faith and not earned by any merit of man.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS are the summation of man’s duty to God and of man’s responsibility to his fellow man.


CHURCH GOVERNMENT is by the Presbyterian system, from which the denomination takes its name.  As outlined in the New Testament, church government is by elders and deacons, elected in a democratic manner by each congregation.

THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM is administered to believers and their children.  All forms of Christian baptism are recognized, and a second ceremony is not administered to those baptized in other churches.

BELIEVERS MAY JOIN the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith or transfer of membership from another denomination.
