Presbyterian Church(USA) Comparison Chart

Comparison of Basic Beliefs and Viewpoints of Three Presbyterian Denominations: 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (PCUSA), Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians 
(ECO), and Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) 
At the request of Mid-Council leaders in the Presbyterian Church (USA) this comparison chart 
has been developed. Every effort has been made to make this as accurate as possible, using the 
official documents of each denomination as sources.

  1. Nicely done. There are only a few minor places where I think the other two denominations might take exception or expand the summary of their beliefs. Personally, I would send it to them and ask them to comment or edit the section that applies to them. Then I would write an introductory paragraph stating that this had been done. It would make it the most credible source out there. This will also separate our way of interacting with the way they have practiced in the recent past. I like it when we are the ones who are 'squeaky clean' and up front. Just a suggestion.

  4. Thanks so much, Don. Someone else pointed this out to us last week, and I will revise and have it up this week. Not quite sure how that mistake got in there. Charles

  5. Just so you know...I notice that in the revised comparative chart of the 3 denominations, the ordination question to candidates regarding the scriptures for the PCUSA, omitted are the words 'in the Church universal, and God's Word to you.'
