Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love, and in Jesus Christ, His Son, our Lord and Saviour, who for us and our salvation, lived and died and rose again, and liveth evermore, and in the Holy Spirit, who taketh of things of God and Christ and revealeth them to us, renewing, comforting, and inspiring the souls of men.
WE ARE UNITED in striving to know the will of God as taught in the Holy Scriptures, and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known to us.
WE HOLD IT TO BE the mission of the Church of Christ to proclaim to all mankind the gospel, exalting the worship of the one true God, and laboring for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace and the realization of human brotherhood.
DEPENDING, AS DID OUR FATHERS, upon the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the Kingdom of God, and we look with faith for triumph of righteousness and the life everlasting.
WE BELIEVE in the freedom and responsibility of the individual soul and the right of private judgment. We hold to the autonomy of the local Church and its independence of all ecclesiastical control.
WE CHERISH the fellowship of the other Congregational Churches, united in state and national bodies for counsel and co-operation in matters of common concern.
