It is interesting that the article has two lines next to each other on property:
On the land subject, PCUSA doctrine states that church properties belong to the denomination.
"That's what you agree to when you practice Presbyterianism," said Jimmy Stuckey, an attorney for the Charleston presbytery.
The first line says it is only doctrine, the second that it applies to ALL Presbyterians, not just PCUSA. Hopefully the lawyer misspoke or was misquoted. That is not EPC doctrine, it was not doctrine until the merger for many churches.Providence Presbyterian Church 171 Cordillo Parkway Hilton Head Island SC 29928
