Title: Unification – Being Whole
Sponsor: Unification Task Force of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church (CPC) and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America (CPCA)
Leader: Pam Phillips-Burk
Description: The Unification process between CPC and CPCA has been a vision/hope/dream for both denominations since 1883. There are currently two denominations based primarily upon race – one African-American and the other primarily white. Both denominations share a common Confession of Faith and church government. There are many issues surrounding the conversation of unification, but both churches are learning that they are more alike than different, and that there is more that can unite us than divided us. In the most recent General Assembly of the CPC, a resolution of “Repentance, Apology and Resolve” was passed asking all CPCs to enter into a time of lament for the racial sins of the past, confession of those sins, and to seek repentance. The time is now to become a whole people of God.
