The name Westminster Standard is taken from the words "Westminster Standards" being the collective name for the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger and Shorter Catechism, the Sum of Saving Knowledge, the National Covenant &c, the Directory for the Public Worship of God, Directory for Family Worship and the Form of Presbyterial Church Government*. There are the doctrinal standards of Presbyterian Churches throughout the world.
Westminster Standard Publications was formed in 1956 by young men in the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland Gisborne, New Zealand congregation, to supply a need for sound Christian literature on subjects as they arose. This volume contains a memorial to the Rev. Walter Scott, a Scottish minister who was called to pastor a congregation in Australia and took a strong stand for similar principles which were at stake in the stand taken by the Revs. Donald MacFarlane and Donald MacDonald in 1893 against the declension in the Free Church of Scotland.
*Free Presbyterian Publications has collected these documents together in one volume available on the website.
