Worship Material for the Orthodox Presbyterian Church

The Orthodox Presbyterian Church is an offshoot of the Presbyterian Church (USA). It was founded in 1936 by J. Gresham Machen, who had been a highly regarded theologian of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Adhering more closely to a Reformed theology, the OPC has an average of 76 members in each of 270 congregations, for a total membership of 20,555. To help members and nonmembers find information on the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an institute dedicated to promoting and supporting the renewal of Christian worship along Reformed lines, has prepared a web page linking to official documents, key worship resources, approved hymnals, and other background and statistical material and sources that will be helpful to members of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and to students, scholars and others interested in learning more about the denomination. Two related resources are “Religious Adherence Influences Lifestyle and Experience,” which explores an economic interpretation of religious affiliation — that is, how different religious teachings and practices influence behavior and produce varying life outcomes; and “The Impact of an Evangelical Worldview on Parenting and Family Life,” which identifies core differences in how Evangelicals engage in married life and parent their offspring, and correlates outcomes in their adult children. You might also appreciate our article linking to “Best Resources to Research Cultural Trends.”
