Evangelic Church of Rio de la Plata (IERP in Spanish)
IERP Church dates back to the Protestant Reformation of the XVI century in Europe. This reform starts with a Christian group that promotes a series of changes in the church with active players such as Pedro Valdo, Martin Lutero, Juan Calvino, Ulrico Zuinglio among many others. IERP begins with the unification first communities on both sides of the Rio de La Plata river. Buenos Aires in 1843, Esperanza (Santa Fe) in 1857, Montevideo (Uruguay) in 1857 and Asuncion (Paraguay) in 1893. Starting on 1840 different communities are formed in Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay by Russian, German and Swiss Immigrants. Because of this IERP is one of the Protestant churches that’s prior to the Declaration of the Constitution of the Argentinian Republic (1853).
Nowadays IERP consists of people from different cultural backgrounds that account for 250 communities grouped into 42 congregations that together form 7 regions called Districts. The “Congregacion Evangelica Argentino Germana Buenos Aires Sur” is one of those congregations associated to IERP.
