Paul urges us in 1 Timothy 2:1–2:  “I exhort, therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” And again, Proverbs 21:1 says, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will.”

The Reformed Presbyterian Church

 The Reformed Presbyterian Church in Manassas sits on the location of the railroad station over which the armies fought during the 1860s. Though most of the fighting took place at some distance from the corner of Center St. and Fairview Avenue, the station on this block was often destroyed in connection with the constantly shifting borders.

 A small Roman Catholic community, mostly related to the railroad, obtained the corner and erected All Saints Church in 1879. Bishop Elder dedicated it the following year. The general architecture reflects a popular New England design of the period.

 For many years, All Saints was the only Roman Catholic Church in a dominantly Protestant area. Eventually priests of the Stigmatine Order took charge of the building and used it as a regional headquarters. These priests lived on the property while serving eight local congregations. The simplicity of Stigmatine devotion made the transition of the sanctuary much simpler when the Reformed Presbyterian Church purchased the property in 1973.

 The tracker organ became part of the church after the building became Presbyterian. The Odell Organ Company’s Opus 80 began life serving a Dutch Reformed congregation near Princeton, New Jersey. Mr. Francis Elliott, the organist, learned of the availability of the historic instrument during his tenure as leader of the regional Organ Historical Society. Under his direction, the Odell Company fully restored the instrument and music lovers from as far as New York City came for the instrument’s rededication.

 Restoration and expansion have always been features of the communities which have worshiped on this corner. At present the building is nearing a major transition in a 10 year plan to repair and strengthen the structure. New foundations, improved floors, and modern heating and cooling systems have been the principal features of this stage. A fellowship hall and classrooms for an expanding Sunday school are on the docket in the near future.

 The name Reformed reflects dedication to the theology of the Reformation in the 16th Century. Churches which trace their heritage through the Geneva Reformer John Calvin used the name Reformed to reflect his vision of re-affirming the faith of the early church. The term Presbyterian derives from the word elder and reflects dedication to governing all parts of life by the Bible. The congregation is associated with Hanover Presbytery, spiritual heir of  the “Hanover Dissenters” or colonial Presbyterians often identified with Virginia statesman Patrick Henry and  is true to the historic creeds of the Reformed faith. The congregation has grown substantially, and continues to grow. The church is a member of The Reformed Presbyterian Church-Hanover Presbytery.

 The building also housed the editorial office of America’s oldest religious magazine, the Christian Observer, which began in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in September 1813. Pastor Edwin Elliott was the managing editor.

 The present congregation conducts a substantial educational program with specialized ministries for each age group. Sunday services are conducted at 10AM and 7PM. Bible classes follow the morning service. Prayer meetings are held daily at 9AM and on Wednesday night at 7:30PM. We are located at 9400 Fairview Avenue (at the corner of Center Street and Fairview Avenue) in Manassas, Virginia. Come visit us! Maps are available to help you find us and you may call us or Email us for more information. See our statements, and positions, on Presbyterian Polity


“If my people … will pray …”

“If my people … will pray …” Please remember to pray for our national, state and local officials and judges, and all the more in times of national danger and decision. Paul urges us in 1 Timothy 2:1–2:  “I exhort, therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” And again, Proverbs 21:1 says, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will.”
