United Protestant Church

The United Protestant Church, abbreviated UPC, is a Lovian mainline Protestant Christian church association and the largest religious body in Lovia. The UPC unites Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, non-denominational Protestants and some Lutherans and Calvinist. The UPC was formed in September 2009, after a merger of five church bodies: the Lovian Methodist Association, the Presbyterian Church in Lovia, the Episcopal Church (Lovia), the Church Union of Lovian Baptists and the Reformed Church of Noble City. In January 2010, the ecumenical Church of Unity joined.

Due to the church's small size it does not have a carefully defined structure, but is led by the Dean Henry John Ludd, who is given the title Very Reverend. This is a tradition inherited from the Episcopal Church.

Parishes of the UPC

The United Protestant Church uses the Lovian Standard Version (published by Lovehouse Bibles) in church. However, the church has been looking for another , more mainstream Protestant translation to use in church. Until now, no such translation has been found. Zack Habermas, a young UPC pastor, explained why the church body didn't "just go for an American or British translation". He said: "Our church is an unseen phenomenon in North America; uniting Christians formerly scattered over denominations and churches of all kinds, and giving them a strong sense of being a Lovian Christian, the way our Lord would have wanted it. Therefore, we seek a translation that fits our special needs as a unique Lovian church."
