This church was founded on September 12th, 1992, in opposition to the charismatic teaching and liturgical practices of the Presbyterian Church of Brazil. The opponents found a “lack of solid calvinist doctrine” in their former church. The Traditional Presbyterian Church of Brazil disagrees of charismatic practices. It does not allow the use of musical instruments in the cult, except the liturgical organ and the piano, as the conjunto coral. “Calvinist doctrine” means for this church basically founding its doctrine in the Scripture and maintaining the Protestant principles “only grace, only faith, only Scripture”. The church has adopted the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Confession of Dordt. It defines itself by its restricted liturgy (as opposed to other Brazilian churches): neither beating nor lifting the hands, nor dances, speaking in languages, wearing “strange costumes”, vigils, or fasts are practised. Bible studies form an important basis of the church’s life.
