Who We Are

We are a church located in Nobleford, Alberta, Canada.

We are a congregation of Reformed Christians, and formally a Preaching Station under the US Presbytery of the Free Church (Continuing).
We are reformed from unbiblical beliefs and practices, and, by God's grace, to be conformed unto the likeness of Christ.
Specifically, we are Classical Reformed. That is, we maintain the Apostolic doctrine and practice rediscovered in the Reformations of the 16th and 17th centuries.
We are also, Confessionally Reformed. That is, we maintain a strict adherence to the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646/7). Such a Reformed Confession does not add to the Word of God, but it merely mirrors and systematizes what the Bible teaches concerning the Bible, God, man, Salvation, Christ, the Church, and other core beliefs.
Because of the above, we endeavour to worship the one true and living God strictly according to the Scriptures. For, it must be admitted, that only a holy God knows how a holy God must be worshipped. Therefore, we must have a Biblical warrant for every element of worship. Consequently, we read the Word (Acts 13:15), we preach the Word (2 Timothy 4:2), we pray in the Name of the Word (John 14:14), we sing unaccompanied the Word of Christ (the Psalms) (Colossians 3:16), and we administer the sacraments ordained by Christ (Matthew 28:19, Luke 22:19–20).

  • We preach from the KJV Bible.

Rev. Paul A. Backhurst

Rev. Paul A. Backhurst grew up in Liverpool, England. He was educated at Liverpool Blue Coat School, and later studied Classics at King's College London. In 2002, he relocated to Nijmegen in the Netherlands, where the Lord saved him in 2004. He met his wife and was married. After some time in various congregations, and a short time in a House Church, they became members of the Restored Reformed Church (Hersteld Hervormde Kerk), where the Doctrines of Grace and the Free Offer of the Gospel where clearly taught.
Having long prayed about a discerned ministerial calling, the Lord opened the door to study at the Whitefield College of the Bible in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK). After being licensed by the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster, the Lord called him to Calgary, Alberta. Ordained in January 2020, he arrived with his wife and seven children in Calgary in March 2020 to minister to the flock at Calgary Free Presbyterian Church. In May 2022, the opportunity arose to preach at a monthly Gospel Outreach in southern Alberta. This grew into a small fellowship of families, who requested Rev. Backhurst to be full-time pulpit supply at the new Nobleford Presbyterian Church. Having been conscious of the Lord’s draw and call for a considerable time, Rev. Backhurst undertook to assist with this Church-plant.
