Reformed Presbyterian Church - Hanover Presbytery


Reformed Presbyterian Church - Hanover Presbytery

The Reformed Presbyterian Church – Hanover Presbytery is a very conservative Reformed Denomination, with 9 congregations in the United States.

When the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod, joined the Presbyterian Church in America in 1983, a group that decided not to go along with the union called themselves the Covenant Presbytery (1983). By 1985 this presbytery had grown to four presbyteries and become the Reformed Presbyterian Church in the United States. In 1990 it changed its name to the RPC in the Americas. Within a year,the four presbyteries of this church were in conflict. One presbytery stood alone as the Hanover Presbytery.

The Hanover Presbytery believes the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God and adhere to the Westminster Confession of faith and Catechisms. They firmly believe in the Regulative principle of worship, sing only psalms and use only the Authorized King James version of the Bible. They hold to a form of Church Government called constitutional presbyterianism, which place great emphisis on the authority of the local congregation in church discipline and there are no ongoing moderators, boards, committees, or salaried staff at presbytery level or above.
