cpj1b.jpgcpj1a.jpgIn a day when it seems Presbyterians are drifting further and further away from the doctrines of the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms, The Confessional Presbyterian journal was founded to provide a forum for ecumenical discussion amongst conservative Presbyterians of different denominations, wishing to defend closer adherence to these old standards of biblical Christianity. The Confessional Presbyterian journal is an annual publication and our goal for each volume is to publish a range of theological, practical and historical material, supportive of the Westminster Standards, while allowing for courteous discussion where disagreements may exist.

cpj2a.jpgcpj2b.jpgIn addition to important and interesting historical work, the journal has published important articles critical of recent movements such as the Federal Vision and New Perspectives on Paul, ground breaking work on the manuscripts and documents of the Westminster Assembly, as well as substantial and illuminating material on Presbyterian polity and worship.  If you would like to submit an article or review for consideration for publication, please investigate our requirements outlined on the Submissions page.
