I WANT MY readers clear that I am a deacon in a Presbyterian church. However, I am NOT a member in the PCUSA. My membership is with the PCA (Presbyterian Church in America), and we are Presbyterian body that does embrace our historic Reformation beliefs and fully affirm our historic confessions (like our Westminster Confession of Faith).

Many of us in confessional Presbyterian denominations consider PCUSA not a true Christian denomination anymore, and the PCUSA is losing membership FAST because they have embraced theological liberalism, which is distinct from political liberalism, (but not by much).

Below is an article of an example of those who are leaving this denomination, and sadly many other are wanting to follow:

(RNS) Members of one of the largest congregations in the Presbyterian Church (USA) have voted to leave the denomination, despite facing an $8.89 million cost for leaving.

    As a member of the PC(USA) I must say that I am saddened that you feel this way about us. We are experiences disagreements and reforms within our body at the moment, but it makes us no less Christian. Those of us who are of the liberal branch still hold to the authority of Holy Scripture and the essentials of the Christian faith, as well as the particulars of Reformed thought. I hope you do realize that because we confess Jesus as Lord we will be sitting at the heavenly banquet with you.
