The Evangelical* Presbyterian Church (EPC) was founded in 1981 and is comprised of over 600 global, gospel centered churches. It is a denomination that is rooted in scripture, adherent to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms, and whose motto is:
In Essentials: Unity.
In Non-Essentials: Liberty.
In All Things: Charity.
Presbyterians believe the Bible teaches that churches are to be lead by elders—not just a single pastor, a set of co-pastors, or by a vast church hierarchy. The original Greek word for “elder” is presbyter, which is where we get the hard-to-spell word “Presbyterian” - see Titus 1:5-9, 1 Timothy, 3:2-6.
