The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) or PC (USA) is a mainline Protestant Christian denomination in the United States. It is part of the Reformed family of Protestantism, descending from that branch of the Protestant Reformation over which John Calvin had a strong, early influence via the Scotsman John Knox, who was a friend and disciple of Calvin. It is the largest Presbyterian denomination in the U.S. and was established by the 1983 merger of the former Presbyterian Church in the United States, whose churches were located in the Southern and border states, and the United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, whose congregations could be found in every state.
