  • Plan de Cuidado Familiar

    From Office of the General AssemblyImmigration

    El Libro de Orden proclama que los grandes fines de la Iglesia son «la proclamación del evangelio para la salvación de la humanidad, el amparo, la educación y la confraternidad espiritual de las criaturas de Dios, el mantenimiento de la adoración divina, la preservación de la verdad, la promoción de la justicia social, y la manifestación del Reino de los Cielos al mundo.»

    En muchas de nuestras iglesias a lo largo de la IP(EUA), hay miembros, hijos/as de Dios, que viven todo el tiempo con mucha incertidumbre causada por su estado ...

  • Family Care Plan

    From Office of the General AssemblyImmigration

    The Book of Order proclaims that great ends of the church are “the proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind; the shelter, nurture, and the spiritual fellowship of the children of God; the  maintenance of divine worship; the preservation of the truth; the promotion of social righteousness; and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.”

    In many of our churches throughout the PCUSA, there are members, children of God, who live with great uncertainty everyday because of their immigration status in this country. These members need shelter, nurture and spiritual fellowship in special ways because ...

  • Wineskins Letter

    From Office of the General AssemblyOffice of Governing Body Relations

    The New Wineskins Association of Churches has raised significant questions about the faith and mission of the church that every Presbyterian should take seriously. NWAC has presented its case in A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven: Report of the Strategy Team of the New Wineskins Association of Churches. Unfortunately, in advancing their case New Wineskins has presented the positions of the PCUSA inaccurately. As they consider the analysis of NWAC, all Presbyterians deserve to know the defined positions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

    From Office of the General AssemblyImmigration

    Las asambleas generales de la Iglesia Presbiteriana comenzaron a hablar sobre inmigración y temas concernientes a los/as refugiados/as cuando las secuelas de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y la división europea desplazaron a millones de personas. Esto llevó a que la Asamblea de la IP(EUA) en 1953 pidiera una revisión comprehensiva de las políticas de inmigración de la nación. En 1954 la Asamblea de la IP(EUA) convocó una legislación que proveyera para las necesidades de los/as trabajadores/as inmigrantes que habían vivido y trabajado en los Estados Unidos ...

  • A Report on Economic Security For Older Adults

    From Office of the General Assembly

    Emphasizing the common good has clear implications for improving the economic security of older Americans. For example, Social Security is not a personal retirement plan but a social insurance program— a compact with other people, other generations, and the United States government. The essence of social insurance is community, that is, we are all in this together as God’s children. It also affirms the responsibility to make health insurance available to all Americans, not just to one’s own family.

  • Resolution Against Torture; Human Rights in a Time of Terrorism

    From Office of the General Assembly

    The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been among the strongest supporters of human rights law, an area of significant success in 20th Century Protestant Christian witness generally. One part of this has been our now 20-year history of preparing human rights updates for Christian education and public policy use. Previous General Assembly actions are noted in the background materials to this year’s resolution; copies can be found in the Advisory Committee’s Social Policy Compilation.

    Along with the resolution and its study paper is printed a second action of the Assembly, a petition calling for a formal congressional ...
