Unification Task Force

 
 

The Cumberland Presbyterian Church and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America share a common heritage and a common Confession of Faith. Many co-operative relationships and partnerships provide united ministries. The witness of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America would be greatly enhanced through a union of the two denominations. New areas of united work will bring this union closer to reality.


In June 2012, the General Assemblies of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church formed a Unification Task Force to work towards

the organic union of the two denominations.


In June 2014, the General Assemblies of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church approved that a Proposed Plan For Union be made available to individuals, congregations, presbyteries, synods and denominational boards and agencies for study and feedback. 


In June 2016, the General Assemblies of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church approved that the revised Plan For Union be made availalbe for study and response/feedback from both denominations.
