Catabaptism in the Presbyterian Church in America


The PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) is this present writer's former denomination.   Before the 1982 merger with the anticatabaptist RPCUS, the larger PCA was a mixture of knowledgeable anticatabaptistic orthodox Calvinians, catabaptistic Neo-Thornwellians, baptismally indifferent Quasi-Independents, and assorted Crypto-Baptists openly tolerating if not covertly supporting the rebaptizing overseas of both Catholics and Protestants by non-denominational submersionistic and antipaidobaptistic missionary societies preying on PCA contributions. 

In 1982, the anticatabaptist Reformed Presbyterian Church Evangelical Synod merged itself out of existence into the larger Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).   This considerable RPCES influx strengthened the anticatabaptists within the PCA — even though the quality of its eschatological and soteriological contributions remains questionable.
