We are the Ottawa Reformed Presbyterian Church. We are a Canadian congregation in the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America. Our denomination traces its roots back to the Protestant Reformation, which began in Germany in 1517.
We are REFORMED in doctrine which means we hold to the truths of the Bible as they were emphasized in the Protestant Reformation.
We are PRESBYTERIAN in government. Our churches are governed by elders (Presbyters). This is the biblical pattern of church government (Titus 1:5, 1 Timothy 3:1-7).
Worship in the Reformed Presbyterian Church follows the pattern of the worship in the church from the days following Pentecost for several hundred years, and then once again in the Reformed churches following the Reformation.
You can read a more comprehensive history of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, and of our congregation. You are also invited to read, investigate, and question us about what we believe.
We believe that it is only on the basis of God’s Word, and through study and education in God’s Word, that we will both exhibit the changed life, and have a substantive impact upon our culture. We believe that such personal, real change and such an exercise of dominion over this world will bring honour and glory to God. To help us accomplish this impact, we have added links to many articles, tools, and references for your perusal, investigation, and edification.
