SPC BECOMES PCA

This Happened On 06/12/1982

Stony Point Church began as a mission church of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod (RPCES). In May of 1981 the Synod of the RPCES took up an invitation to become a part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The RPCES and the PCA were in agreement about several areas of vital importance including the inerrancy of the Bible, doctrinal beliefs and reformed theology, governing principles, ministerial goals and dedication to the purity of the church.

Believing that the merger of the two bodies would tangibly demonstrate Christian unity to a watching world and bring praise to the Lord, the RPCES voted overwhelmingly to join the PCA on June 12, 1982. with Dr. Richard Chewning, an SPC elder, presiding as moderator of the Synod which took up this motion and approved the merger.  Soon after, SPC became a congregation of the PCA.
