About Us

Welcome to Faith Reformed


Isaiah 43:6-7

God made us to worship and love Him. He made us to magnify His greatness as a telescope magnifies the stars.

What We Believe

None of us has trusted and treasured God as we should (Romans 3:23). We have sought our ultimate satisfaction in other things. We have treated them as more valuable than God, which is idolatry (Romans 1:21-23). We have all sinned and this is evidenced in our seeking to live independently of God. Our sin separates and alienates us from God and others. We turn to other things to fill the emptiness in our lives.

The Good News is that Christ, Who is the eternal God-Man, died for sinners like us (1 Timothy 1:15). He rose physically from the grave proving His claim to have power over death and to open eternal life and joy for all who believe (John 3:16).

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out” (Acts 3:19).
We do not earn our salvation. We cannot merit it. Saving faith is resting and relying on Christ alone for your salvation as is offered in the Gospel (Ephesians 2:8-9). It is transferring your trust for eternal life from yourself – your own goodness – to Christ and what He has done to purchase your salvation.

Our History

Planted by Liberty Reformed Presbyterian Church of Randallstown, Maryland in 1977, Faith Reformed Presbyterian Church was declared a “Particular Church” by the Delmarva Presbytery (Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod which later merged with the Presbyterian Church in America) on June 2, 1979. The organizing pastor, Rev. Jack Skeen, was used by God to form the foundation of the church, which started out as a small Bible Study. During this time the church acquired the property and building where we are still located today.

In February 1982, Rev. George Miller became the new pastor and his ministry of building up the congregation and sustaining the church continued for 17 years until his retirement at the end of November 1999. Following a brief interim period, Rev. James Knight then shepherded the congregation until he accepted a call back to his native Georgia, departing at the end of August 2004. During Pastor Knight’s pastorate at Faith Reformed Presbyterian Church, a number of new programs were developed and implemented and the mortgage was retired.

In August 2005, following an extensive search period, Rev. John F. Armstrong, Jr. accepted a call and was installed by the Potomac Presbytery as Pastor of Faith Reformed Presbyterian Church.

For over 45 years, our Lord God has been faithful to His church in Frederick throughout its existence, providing for every need in every way.
