Presbyterian Church (USA), a mainline Protestant denomination that has had hundreds of congregations leave it in protest of its increasingly pro-LGBT direction, weighed in on the Nashville Statement.

PC(USA)'s Theology and Worship ministry released a statement in which it described its denomination as "agnostic around issues of homosexuality."

"In terms of the Nashville Statement, it would seem that one could be a faithful leader in the PC(USA) and affirm aspects of the Nashville Statement such as believing that marriage is between a man and a woman," stated the PC(USA) ministry.

"There are other articles, particularly those around transgender persons, that go beyond anything the PC(USA) has officially taken a stand on."

The ministry also argued that the Nashville Statement's view on self-conception "does not do justice to the experiences of transgender persons. Nor does the experience of transgender persons neatly fit with issues around persons with same gender attraction."
