Our Confession of Faith

The Westminster Confession of Faith is the subordinate standard of Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland. It is a summary of what we understand the Bible to teach about what we are to believe and how we are to live. We believe that the Westminster Confession of Faith is not simply to be acknowledged but is actually to be used in the teaching of Christians.
