Description
Community Presbyterian Church of Bellflower (CPCB), founded in December 2000 and located at 9630 Mayne St. in Bellflower, is a sprawling Spanish-style building that is painted light beige with a red tile roof. In this photograph, a close-up of the large cupola or bell tower is visible above the main entrance.; Presbyterianism is predominantly a Christian denomination. The earliest American Presbyterian churches were established in Virginia, New England, Maryland, and Delaware during the 17th century and were mainly of English origin. Portions of the Presbyterian Church in the United States have been separated from the main body, and some parts have reunited several times. The greatest division occurred in 1861 during the American Civil War. The two branches that were created by that division were reunited in 1983 to form the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), which is currently the largest Presbyterian group in this country. In North America, because of past or current doctrinal differences, Presbyterian churches often overlap. Photo dated: April 2004.
