The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is a conservative Protestant Christian denomination, the second largest Presbyterian church body in the United States after the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The PCA professes a strong commitment to evangelism, missionary work, and Christian education. The church declares its goal to be “faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission.”
