Gospel Church that left Kirk over liberalism outgrows building

from The Christian Institute:

A congregation that left the Church of Scotland (CoS) more than ten years ago over the denomination’s approval of a minister in a same-sex relationship continues to thrive.

Revd Peter Dickson and his congregation at High Hilton Church were the first to leave the Kirk after it defended appointing the openly homosexual Minister Revd Scott Rennie to another church in Aberdeen. They formed Trinity Church Aberdeen and subsequently joined the International Presbyterian Church.

Since 2011, Church of Scotland congregations have continued to leave the denomination over its rejection of Scripture.

The present minister of Trinity, David Gibson, said: “One of the abiding lessons of church history is that when the church tries to reach the world by being as progressive as the world by imitating the world, then it is not long before the church ends up as broken as the world.”

Two years ago, the church bought an large abandoned church building in the centre of Aberdeen to serve God in the city.

After leading the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina for many years, pastor and theologian Dr. Sinclair Ferguson recently returned to his homeland. He has now agreed to be preaching associate at Trinity Church.
