Faithful to the Scriptures True to the Reformed Faith

The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) emerged out of the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUS) in 1973, because of its growing tendency to compromise on essential beliefs of the Christian church. In order to remain faithful to the Bible and core beliefs of the historic church, delegates from 260 congregations from across the country, found it necessary to leave the PCUS and form the National Presbyterian Church, which later became known as the Presbyterian Church in America.

From its beginning, the guiding principles of the PCA have always been to be “faithful to the Scriptures, true to the reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission.”
