At the Annual General Meeting of the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster on 7 September 2007 it was agreed by an overwhelming majority of members that all Presbytery offices should remain as at present for the remainder of this calendar year.
In January 2008 all offices will be vacated. Dr Paisley has indicated that he will not be standing for the office of Moderator of Presbytery.
Ministers and elders left the meeting united, determined to go forward to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and continue to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
â€” Rev. Ron Johnstone (Deputy Moderator)
The following comments were made by Dr. Ian Paisley at Martyrs Memorial Church on the Sunday morning following the Presbytery Meeting:
"At our annual Presbytery Meeting held here on Friday night, 7 Sept. The Free Presbyterian Church was facing a very real crisis. By what, that I can only describe, Christ's intervention -- the atmosphere of that meeting suddenly changed."
We encourage you to listen to the rest of this message preached by Dr. Ian Paisley entitled Christ, The Worker.
