In the spirit of our legacy of Jesus-centered ministry, lay-led service, and compassionate outreach, CPC has devoted extensive time to evaluating our denominational affiliation. We are currently members of the Presbyterian Church USA and have requested a transfer to another Presbyterian denomination called ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
2014 DENOMINATIONAL UPDATE: SURVEY RESULTS
A survey of the congregation was distributed by the Presbytery of the Twin Cities Area (PTCA) over the summer. 1,900 members responded and 83% were in favor of being dismissed from the PC(USA) to ECO. Read the entire Executive Discovery Report (PDF). Because of this compelling response, CPC has now entered into negotiations with the PC(USA) for the financial terms of our move to ECO, a process which will take 5-6 months.
