Early Presbyterians founded congregations in America as early as the 1630s.

Recommended Posts

Church roots are traced to Scotland and the writings of John Calvin, but in America, Presbyterians were the earliest Reformed immigrants. They settled along the East Coast and founded congregations in the early 1630s. By 1706, seven Presbyterian ministers formed the first Presbyterian presbytery in America. Then in 1717, a synod was organized of four other presbyteries.

Many early Presbyterians were among those who would help in the writing of the state and national constitutions, according to the Presbyterian Historical Society. The synod itself met in Philadelphia in 1788 to form the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America and it also adopted its own constitution for the church.
