The American Presbyterian Church was formed in 1979[1] by 5 ministers who were separated from the Bible Presbyterian Church, when it dissolved the BPC Philadelphia Presbytery. Three congregations were established. These churches are premillennialist,[2] and demand of their members the abstinence of alcohol. In worship they sing psalms only. The Westminster Confession of Faith and the Heidelberg Catechism are accepted.[3][1] Now the denomination consists of two congregations, in Bordentown, N.J. and Westminster, Maryland.[4]
