Our Tradition

St. Andrew's Church (The Kirk) is of the Scottish Presbyterian tradition and continues to belong to it. Its form of worship and system of governance continue to be truly Presbyterian. However, it is free to follow and does include other orders of service used by any other Church with which it is doctrinally like-minded.



What we Believe

St. Andrew's Church (The Kirk) accepts The Apostles' Creed, The Nicene Creed and The Westminster Confession of Faith (based upon the original manuscript written by Cornelius Burgess) with four minor exceptions, namely, the deletion of the reference to civil magistrate (XX-4), of strictures against marrying one's wife's or husband's kindred (XXIV-4), the reference to the Pope as the Antichrist (XXV-6), and of matters concerning obtaining advice (entire XXXI-2), as worthy expositions of the Word of God and as doctrinal standards of the church.

Our Confession of Faith




Our Vision

"TO BE A CONGREGATION OF OBEDIENT DISCIPLES OF THE LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST"

Exposition of Our Vision

As an Apostolic Church:

To prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ; - Ephesians 4: 12 - 13

Be a Church Family empowered by the Holy Spirit, and as a Body of Christ's disciples, serving and upholding each other in love as commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ; - John 13 : 34 - 35 & Romans 5 : 5, I Corinthians 12 : 13

Obey the Lord's commandment to bear witness to the Word and preach the Gospel to the world; - Matthew 28: 18 - 20 & Acts 1: 8

Rise up true worshipers to worship Him in Spirit and in truth and glorify God by bearing much fruit. - John 4: 24 & 15: 8
