Interested in the Presbyterian Church? 

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is rooted and grounded in the Christian Reformed Tradition, with deep roots and a strong heritage.  The bible is important to us -- we look for the Word of God in and through those words.

We are also reformed, always reforming -- expecting change and responding in ever new and exciting ways.  Our community is theologically diverse and connectional.  We work to listen hard and to communicate our way through to new ways of understanding.  PCUSA understands that all human beings are inherently connected to each other and bear the image of God. We are committed to building relationships outside our denomination and outside our faith tradition.

For information about what our denomination is doing in the world and to have access to daily bible readings and more, check out www.pcusa.org.

 

The 222nd General Assembly of the Presbytrian Church (USA)
June 18-25, Portland, OR

The Assembly took several historic actions: choosing all-female co-moderators: T. Denise Anderson and Jan Edminston, rather than a moderator and vice moderator; adding the Confession of Belhar from South Africa to the PCP(USA) Book of Confessions; and electing the PC(USA)’s first African-American stated clerk, J. Herbert Nelson II, to a four-year term. He is a third generation Presbyterian pastor and the director of the denomination’s Office of Public Witness.
