Welcome to the website of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Australia. We are a Presbyterian church, constituted as several congregations along the east coast of Australia, whose aim is to faithfully proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, in the tradition of the Protestant Reformation. We believe the truth of the Holy Bible as expressed in the Westminister Confessional Standards as originally adopted by the Reformed Church of Scotland.
 
A History of Reformed (Presbyterian) Christian Education
Rev Chris Coleborn

The Reformed Churches of Continental Europe and Scotland and England spoke of the Christian education of the youth of the Church. What did they mean by this qualification of the education of their covenant youth? They meant this: nothing less than the teaching of human knowledge within the context of God-centred Christianity. They did not mean schools only for the teaching of the Bible as such. Nor did they mean the teaching of human knowledge with some Christianity taught as an adjunct to that knowledge. Rather, they meant a study of human knowledge that was based upon, seen in the light of, and fully integrated with Divine knowledge. This perspective on knowledge, they believed, would equip students with the true tools of learning so they would be, as much as humanly possible, prepared for all that is to be faced in life and death.

The episode we consider in this article occurred immediately after Jesus came back down from the Mount of Transfiguration, with Peter, James and John.

Consider

If our knowledge of God is superficial, then our worship will be superficial. If our God is small, than our worship, for all its outward excitement and exuberance, will be empty, earthbound, man-centered and sensual. Only as we come to understand the greatness of our God and our total dependence upon Him for all things, most of all for His so great salvation, will our worship exhibit the reverence and solemnity of which He is truly worthy. - J. Hooper
