Blackhawk Presbyterians for Fidelity Launched

BPF is a para-denominational mission like many others including teaching and ruling elders maintaining credentials in the PCUSA

“It is a significant movement recognizing the inertia of a denomination increasingly and irretrievably apostate under current management and the necessity of identifying, encouraging and equipping faithful sisters and brothers for worship, work and witness.”

 

“Blackhawk Presbyterians for Fidelity” (BPF) was launched on November 11, 2016 in Rockford, Illinois during a gathering of representatives from part of the remnant in the Presbyterian Church (USA) praying and laboring to be faithful to over 2,000 years of Biblical, confessional, constitutional, historical, traditional and common sense Christianity.

BPF is a para-denominational mission like many others including teaching and ruling elders maintaining credentials in the PCUSA.

It is a significant movement recognizing the inertia of a denomination increasingly and irretrievably apostate under current management and the necessity of identifying, encouraging and equipping faithful sisters and brothers for worship, work and witness.

The mission will encourage PCUSA churches, clergy, elders, and membership to remain faithfully and network with others praying and laboring to remain faithfully.

“Praying and working together to make Blackhawk Presbytery faithful again,” BPF will meet at least semi-annually with representatives of remnant churches within the bounds of Blackhawk Presbytery for worship, encouragement and equipping.

Initially, the missionary movement will concentrate on three opportunities:

  1. Identifying churches and clergy within the bounds of Blackhawk Presbytery who are remaining faithfully for encouragement and equipping to evangelize and disciple the unchurched within their reach;
  2. Pastoral, financial, educational and polity assistance to churches and clergy remaining faithfully; and
  3. Regular youth gatherings at Stronghold Camp and Retreat Center in Oregon, Illinois.
