PC(USA) & ECO: Denomination

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.

Listen and read below for essential information on the process CPC has undergone for discernment and gracious dismissal from the PCUSA.

  • Listen: February 2015 Update from John Crosby

  • Read: September 2014 Survey Results
    1,900 members responded to a congregational survey in Summer 2014 with 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 entered into negotiations for the financial terms of our move.
  • Read: A Vision for CPC's Future, which details our vision for ministry, reasons for transferring, and frequently asked questions. (Distributed June 2014)
