In light of the various narratives about why people are leaving or should leave the Presbyterian Church (USA), I recently posed the question, Why do you choose to stay in the Presbyterian Church (USA)? Here is one more person sharing why they are staying in the Presbyterian Church (USA) . . .
Why do you choose to stay in the Presbyterian Church (USA)?:
I stay because of the acceptance of diversity and the theological teachings of the Jesus guided by the Bible. I also stay because I like a governing body, however that is not to say yo cannot leave your session unaccountable.
We had a major split . . . lost 400-800, we kept the church with a strong remnant of believers (25 members). We are thriving, and healthy, but starting a mission study to find God’s discernment, since HE is who GUIDES us.
