New experiences on the American frontier led to the formation of this church in 1810. It grew from a revival movement in Kentucky and Tennessee around 1800. Three Tennessee ministers led the organization out of the Presbyterian Church because they rejected the doctrine of election and reprobation found in the Westminster Confession. Also included in their statement of faith is a belief that all infants are saved by Christ. The church grew to almost 200,000 members around the turn of the century. A union with the Presbyterian Church USA in 1906 was only partially successful, and a substantial number continued as the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Most of the congregations are still found in the American South and in the former border states between South and North. In recent years closer links with the Presbyterian Church (USA) have been established.
