Puerto Rico Council of Churches (CIPR)

Concilio de Iglesias de Puerto Rico

 

The Council of Churches of Puerto Rico (CIPR) is the more ancient ecclesial ecumenical organization of America. It professes the unity of Christ’s body and the service to God and Puerto Rico. The council was founded in 2002.  Previous to the CIPR, the Federation of Evangelical Churches of Puerto Rico was formed in 1905, which became the Union in 1916, the Association in 1934, and the Evangelical Council of Puerto Rico in 1954. 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 a fraternal bond, common history, and similar public witness.

Churches that currently make up the body of the CIPR are:

  • Baptist Churches of Puerto Rico
  • Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
  • United Evangelical Church of Puerto Rico
  • Methodist Church of Puerto Rico
  • Presbyterian Church (USA) in Puerto Rico
  • Church of the Brethren
  • First Union Church
  • Second Union Church
