The Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) is a denomination or “family” of churches that’s home to more than 575 churches comprised of about 150,000 members across the United States. The EPC is Presbyterian in government, Reformed in theology and Evangelical in spirit. Since its inception in 1981, the EPC has embraced the Westminster Confession of Faith as its doctrinal standard and the rule of spiritually mature elders linked together regionally as the best way to guide local congregations.
The EPC has a solid world missions program with a priority on sending missionaries to unreached people groups. It is eager to plant churches across the United States and especially in urban communities and college towns in the hope that every one of its congregations will be an outpost of the Kingdom in post-Christian America with every member viewing himself or herself as a missionary on a mission.
