The Presbyterian Church, USA

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is a Reformed Protestant Christian denomination that traces its roots to the colonial period. It was originally organized in the United States in 1789, with the current form created in 1983 through reunion of northern and southern churches that had split over the Civil War. In 2009 the denomination reported over 10,000 congregations with a combined membership of approximately 2,300,000.

The Presbyterian participation in the FACT 2010 project included a survey of 881 congregations, sampled randomly within categories of region, membership size, and race ethnicity to be representative of the entire denomination. A total of 541 questionnaires were completed and returned, for a 61% response rate. View the version of the questionnaire used by the Presbyterian Church.
