Council of Churches of Puerto Rico

Founded in 2002 (forerunners: the Federation of Evangelical Churches of Puerto Rico formed in 1905, which became the Union in 1916, the Association in 1934, and the Evangelical Council of Puerto Rico in 1954).

Basis: The member churches of the Council of Churches in Puerto Rico are centered in the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, motivated by the gospel to seek the unity of the church (John 17:21), and bound together by bonds of fraternity, a common history and the same witness. They affirm that God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - is one in three, and recognize the centrality of the Bible as source of revelation.
