Today was Denomination Day in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. This is a day set aside to celebrate and to remember the beginnings of our denomination.
Born out of the great revival of the 1800’s, Cumberland Presbyterians have a very sound foundational doctrine. It speaks of God’s love for mankind and offers hope for all. In a “nutshell” Cumberland Presbyterians believe that Christ died for all people and we practice something called a “whosoever will” doctrine. That means that anybody may receive the salvation of Christ by only believing, repenting of their sins, and accepting Him into their heart.
To me and many other Cumberland Presbyterians this is very good news for a lost world and we are happy to share it with others.
