The early history of this rapidly growing church can be traced as far back as 1843 when the Alfred Saker of the English Baptist Missionaries Society started work in Fernandopo, which is today an integral part of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. However, the direct lineage of the PCC dates back to the 23rd of December 1886 with the arrival of the Basel Missionaries. And on the 13th of November 1957 in Bali of the North West Province of Cameroon, the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon was born and the 1st Synod was constituted. As is the case with any organization with the zeal to succeed, there must be an authority (a governing body) to oversee its affairs.
The Synod of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon is the supreme governing body of the Community of Christians called The Presbyterian Church In Cameroon. Its 1st elected Officials were elected in 1958 in the persons of Rev. A. Ngole and Rev. A. Su, as Moderator and Synod Clerk respectively.
