The Presbyterian Church (USA) calls in our Book of Order that "a congregation shall welcome all persons who trust in God’s grace in Jesus Christ and desire to become part of the fellowship and ministry of his Church." Furthermore, we are called also not discriminate for any reason, except for profession of faith. In other words, everyone who calls on Christ as Lord is welcome and accepted here.
