HOME > About Us > INTRODUCTION
The Evangelical Assembly of Presbyterian Churches in America (EAPCA) is single ecclesiastical body composed of many churches, with an extended global network. This consists of 7 presbyteries, 73 local churches, which coordinate various local missions, and over 100 foreign missions and congregations started by EAPCA missionaries worldwide.
“Evangelical” and “Presbyterian” describe the core values and structure of our organization. Evangelicals embrace the ‘born-again' experience, use the Bible as the primary source of God's revelation to man and as an absolute authority, encourage evangelism (the act of sharing the Gospel), and focus on Christ's redeeming work on the cross, especially as the means for salvation and the forgiveness of sins. Presbyterians adhere to the Westminster Confession of Faith, emphasize salvation by faith, believe in the absolute providence of God, and govern on a system of Elders, or ‘presbyters'.
This combination of characteristics and beliefs also describe our members' beliefs and our denomination's system. Therefore, we have come to be called by both names, The Evangelical Assembly of Presbyterian Churches in America.
