A Needful Departure: Greg Johnson and Memorial Presbyterian have left the PCA

 By Jon Payne - Posted at Gospel Reformation:

It’s official. Greg Johnson and his congregation have voted to leave the Presbyterian Church in America.[1] It’s a sad departure, especially for a church that has been affiliated with the PCA since 1980. Arguably, however, it’s not only a sad departure. It’s a needful one.

The historic Memorial Presbyterian Church, located in St. Louis, MO, is departing the PCA under an ominous cloud of ecclesiastical controversy.[2] The last four years have been plagued with serious concerns, objections, and complaints over Johnson and Memorial PCA’s theological views and ministries. As a result, admonishment and scrutiny have come from within the PCA, as well as the wider Reformed and Evangelical community. The following are some reasons why:


In 2018 Memorial PCA hosted Revoice, a conference ministry dedicated to “supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex-attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.”[3] Greg Johnson has been a keynote speaker at the annual Revoice conference, the leading conference for the gay celibate Christian movement (side B).
