Intinction Amendment Fails

The 40th General Assembly passed an overture to revise “Book of Church Order” 58-5. The change would prohibit the practice of intinction (dipping bread into a common cup instead of receiving the bread and cup separately). Two-thirds of the PCA’s 80 presbyteries must approve the change for the motion to pass.

As of Jan. 23, 41 presbyteries had reported their vote. Twelve presbyteries have voted in favor of the change; 29 have rejected it, making it impossible to reach the two-thirds required.
