PCUSA’s use of ‘true church’ is contrary to its meaning
The Layman November 2006 Volume 39, Number 5, compared to 350 to 400 before the “schismatics were turned over to Ceasar,” as the denomination’s once-secret legal strategy phrases it.
Meanwhile, there remains a “true church” in Findlay. It consists of those who voted to leave the denomination and reorganize as Gateway Evangelical Presbyterian Church. After having to meet in a kennel the first Sunday after the presbytery raid, they have nearly completed a $3.5-million building. And membership is booming where the gospel is rightly preached, the sacraments rightly administered and discipline is used to hold members and leaders accountable to Christ. Even the “hierarchy” of the PCUSA ought to appreciate that.
