New Conservative Presbyterian Denomination Reports Rapid Growth

The Evangelical Covenant of Presbyterians, a new reform body founded in 2012, concluded its National Gathering in Dallas on Wednesday.

The Rev. Dr. Dana Allin, synod executive for ECO, noted that since the last gathering, held in 2013, the Presbyterian denomination had experienced fantastic growth in the number of member churches.

"It's exciting to see how we've grown from 30 churches and 10,000 covenant partners at our first Synod gathering in 2013 to now having 149 churches and 60,000 covenant partners at this gathering," wrote Allin.

"Plus, it's extremely encouraging to see a dozen church plants in various stages of formation and organization! There is so much to be grateful for." ...

I'm sorry to see that Dr. Ice didn't put this on his usual sites, http://www.worldviewweekend.com/article/understanding-domion-theology-christian-reconstructionists-and-new-apostolic-reformation , the article itself is good one would hope this new denomination will stay out of politics -- at least.

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who has serious misgivings about this "conservative" denomination. How come these churches are only NOW separating from the ungodly neo-orthodoxy that marks liberal "churches" such as the PCUSA? The acceptance of homosexuality by the PCUSA is minor in comparison to their denial of the authenticity, inerrancy, sufficiency, and authority of scripture. By their denial, they have called into question the sovereign authority, truthfulness, and faithfulness of God. If the congregations that have split off have been content all these years to discount the Bible, what is there to make us believe that they have suddenly had a wholesale change of opinion concerning sola scriptura which is (I dare say) far more important - and fundamental - than doctrines about homosexuality? I hope that I'm wrong. However, I fear that "liberal lite" is a good description: close enough to the truth to pass all but the closest scrutiny, yet containing enough error to be damning. Job 14:4

If the Presbytarian seminaries continue teach with the same liberal exegesis that have been part of this denomination since the 30's then this change will not be as significant as reported. Eliminate the liberal bias feeding the denomination and you will have change.

I certainly hope someone is tracking this new group in some kind of Encyclopedia of Denominations. I heard there were hundreds, if not thousands.
A good cartoon showed a classroom with a chart with all the branches coming down, and the teacher saying, "And here is where we got it right"

I think this "ECO" crowd left it too late to adhere to Scripture.
I would draw BACK FURTHER, to when they no longer required head coverings for women. It was an invitation to the dishonour that followed

1 Corinthians 11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

I wouldnt call the ECO 'conservative,' but its certainly more conservative than the PCUSA of Sodom & Babylon these Churches are leaving.
Im afraid they(ECO) are offering way too much flexibility for doctrinal progressives to later infect their churches
