We believe the whole bible to be the true and faithful word of God.
We encourage everyone to read the bible – it is a book of teaching, instruction, narrative (story) and wisdom, inspired by the Holy Spirit, written down by men and preserved by God for our benefit. We use the New King James Version (NKJV) in worship, accepting this as a faithful translation from original texts and other translation works, and provided in modern language relevant to readers.
A copy of the bible can be found at:

Westminster Confession of Faith
For a much more detailed account of what we believe the Bible teaches please read ‚ The Westminster Confession of Faith (with our minor amendments by PRC).
The Westminster Confession of Faith is a reformed confession produced in 1646 by the Westminster Assembly in London. Intended to set the doctrinal standards for the Church of England, it became a powerful force in the Church of Scotland and has influenced Presbyterian churches all over the world. Today, numerous churches and denominations worldwide, including the Presbyterian Reformed Church of Australia, look to the Westminster Confession as their standard of doctrine, subordinate to Scripture.
A chapter-by-chapter reading of Gordon Clarke’s very helpful commentary on the Westminster Confession of Faith, ‘What do Presbyterians Believe‘ is available online for listening or download here.
