Presbyterianism refers to the system of church government of the church.

Recommended Posts

The church name comes from the system of government the religion uses. Representative assemblies of elders, which are called presbyteries, govern the church. In comparison, bishops govern the Episcopal Church and congregational church is government by congregations. The word “Presbyterian” comes from the bible, from the Greek word for “elder.”

In the Presbyterian church,teaching elders and ruling elders, or ministers, are ordained and responsible for their local congregation. Other business duties of the church, such as finance and buildings, are responsibilities given to deacons.

In the Presbyterian Church (USA), a Presbyterian polity is used, where the governing bodies are session, a group of elected pastors and elders; presbytery, which is all congregations in a geographic area; synods, which are presbyteries in a geographical area; and the general assembly, which is the highest governing body in the church.
