Beliefs & Council
The Evangelical Protestant Society (EPS) was established in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1946 as a mainstream inter-denominational umbrella organisation designed to unite evangelical Protestants in the promotion and defence of the historic Protestant and Reformed faith in Northern Ireland and beyond. It was founded at a time when liberalism and false ecumenism were making ever increasing inroads into the Protestant churches.
In the years since its formation, the EPS has remained true to its principles. We praise God that, in His strength and wisdom, we have been enabled to stand in the evil day, and still remain standing.
The EPS seeks to reach out to all, irrespective of class or creed, with the Gospel of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (justification by faith), to promote and defend the tenets of historic Biblical Protestantism, and to fulfil the role of an umbrella organisation uniting Protestants of different churches and backgrounds.
Today, we face new challenges. Knowledge of the Bible and the Reformed faith is at an all-time low. False religions and secularism are rampant, and the spiritual and moral fabric of Ulster is falling apart at the seams. In such an environment, it is easy for the Church of Rome and the ecumenical movement to further their campaigns. Sadly, some within evangelical churches have all but abandoned their opposition to Romanism, and the need for a society such as EPS is greater than ever.
Will you join with us and help us to raise the evangelical Protestant banner in the 21st century?
