About the same time as the Disruption, another doctrinal dispute was ongoing in the Church of Scotland. Presbyterians accepted the Calvinistic Doctrine of Election as defined in the Westminster Confession of Faith. To this doctrine was offered that of free salvation for all, with the Rev. Dr. Morrison of Kilmarnock as leader of the new dissenters. In 1844 a small local group set up an independent church in Neilston.
