Also known as the Second Cumberland Presbyterian Church, this church came into being when a black minister successfully appealed to organize a separate African church, so that blacks could learn selfreliance. The 1869 Assembly granted his request, and in 1874 the first General Assembly of the Colored Cumberland Presbyterian Church was held. The church is still mainly located in the South. A few of its 153 congregations are found in Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, and Texas. The Cumberland PCA publishes a monthly mission magazine, The Cumberland Flag. In 1993 the church joined the National Council of Churches. The church sees as a main challenge the move from addressing the survival of the African-American community to sharing in its reconstruction. It is seriously concerned with human rights issues and with women’s partnership with men in the church.

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
