WHO WE ARE

 

First and Second Markethill Presbyterian Church is one congregation within the wider Presbyterian Church in Ireland. The word Presbyterian derives from the word for Elders, and describes our system of Church government, where each congregation has democratically elected leaders, or Elders. 

 

The Presbyterian Church holds that "the Word of God as set forth in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments is the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and the supreme standard of the Church". That may seem complicated but what it means in practice is that our authority as a church resides in the Bible in which God has spoken and through which He still speaks. It was this conviction which shapes our life together at First and Second Markethill Presbyterian Church and hence as a church we are committed to teaching the Bible systematically and clearly week by week.

 

Verse of the Week

 

"My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry."
