What Do We Believe?

We have a wide array of belief systems in our church, with two basic truths in common: we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord in our lives, and we look to Holy Scripture as the definitive source of knowledge about God. We come together in worship and fellowship to discover together the truths of God, relying on scripture, rather than religious dogma, to govern our understanding.

 

How Do We Govern Ourselves?
A Congregational Church is governed by its members, under the leadership of Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit. For efficiency, our church uses three boards: the Board of Church Life, which handles spiritual matters; the Board of Religious Education, which governs our educational offerings for children and adults; and the Board of Trustees, which oversees matters related to the physical plant. These boards meet on a monthly basis.

 

The council is led by the moderator, who is elected by all members of the church at the Annual Meeting. The congregation meeting together under the direction of the Holy Spirit -- this is where Congregationalism is at its best.

Our Covenant

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 or to be made known to us.


We hold it to be the mission of the Church

to proclaim the gospel to all humanity,

exalting the worship of one true God,

and laboring for the progress of knowledge,

the promotion of justice,

the reign of peace,

and the realization of human

brotherhood and sisterhood.


Depending, as did our ancestors,

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 the triumph of righteousness

and the life everlasting.
