The Reformed Presbyterian Church in the United States is a small Presbyterian denomination with twelve congregations in the United States. The RPCUS was established in 1983, and subscribes, as is customary, to the Westminster Confession and believes in biblical inerrancy. Historically the denomination has also been associated with the Christian Reconstructionist movement. [http://www.natreformassn.org/statesman/99/invaconq.html]

The "mother" church of the RPCUS was Chalcedon Presbyterian Church (currently located in Cumming, Georgia), which left the Presbyterian Church of America to become the first member of the new denomination. Chalcedon Church, whose pastor remains the Rev. Joe Morecraft III, was joined in 1987 by Covenant Presbyterian Church, which grew out of a Reformed Bible study group held in Buford, Georgia. The study group had been partially under the headship of the Rev. Wayne Rogers; Covenant Church is led today by the Rev. Christopher B. Strevel.

The twelve current RPCUS congregations include five in Georgia, two in Tennessee, two in Virginia, and one each in North Carolina, Texas, and Ecuador.
