The ARP Church

The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, a conservative evangelical Christian denomination, has been faithfully preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ for over 225 years. Its roots are traced to the Reformation, particularly the work of John Calvin and John Knox. Scottish immigrants who came to America in search of religious freedom brought the faith to these shores.

The ARP Church of today began as a primarily rural denomination concentrated in the Southeast, but has followed the flow of people into urban centers, across the country, and into Canada. With just over 290 congregations, relationships are strong between individual churches as well as members. We stand firm on the tenets of Reformed theology as stated in our Confession of Faith (download in PDF format), but our worship styles range from traditional to contemporary.

We hope you will visit us. Here you will find a pastor and people ready to help nurture your relationship with Jesus Christ. To find out more Chester ARP, please feel free to explore the rest of this site, or contact us.
