The PCA is a growing denomination with over 1,450 churches and missions throughout the USA and Canada. "Reformed" defines the theological beliefs of the PCA, which are summarized in the churches' biblically-supported confession, the Westminster Confession of Faith.
The PCA's presbyterian leadership is biblical, accountable, and transparent. Churches are governed by trained elders elected by the individual congregations. The local churches comprise the regional presbyteries, which facilitates connectionism to the national General Assembly. This connectionism promotes a bond of union between and among all the churches.
