Welcome to

Markethill Presbyterian Church

We are a family of followers of Jesus Christ based in the village of Markethill. With God’s help, we desire to worship and serve him in the community where he has planted us.

Who we are

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 is this conviction which shapes our life together at Markethill Presbyterian Church and hence as a church we are committed to teaching the Bible systematically and clearly week by week.

Our Vision Statement

To know Jesus Christ, reflect him in our lives, and help others to know Him.

Become a Christian

If you have arrived here because you are curious as to what Christians are about, then you are not alone.

There is often much confusion regarding what a Christian is and what Christians are supposed to do. We have tried to debunk the myths with a simple to understand illustration. If you would like some further information, please do get in touch with us.

We look forward to meeting you!

How to become a Christian

Realising how to become a Christian is the most important discovery of your life! Becoming a Christian is more than joining a church or saying a prayer. It is a personal relationship that will last for eternity. Do you know what will happen to you the moment you die? Where will you find yourself? Where is your destination?

Eternity in heaven – This destination is reserved for those who receive Jesus Christ’s gift of eternal salvation. Contrary to popular belief, heaven is not for the church-goers, the devout, or the “good people.” The only stipulation is receiving God’s gift of salvation.
