This church was organized September 10, 1978, as the result of a protest movement in the 1970s within the Presbyterian Church of Brazil (IPB, cf. no.1)against both the doctrinal and the political positions of the church. Some years earlier, several pastors and communities, upon leaving the IPB, constituted themselves as the National Federation of Presbyterian Churches. The church is present in several states of Brazil and is distinguished by its ecumenical character, positive valuation of the ministry of women, and public positions against the social injustices that have been inflicted on the people.
