What it means to be Congregational

“Congregationalism is all about Christians working and worshipping together in independent congregations making decisions as God leads them in matters of worship, witness and service to their communities”

Generally, Congregational churches have a broadly orthodox faith commitment, believing in God as a Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who has uniquely revealed to humanity as much of His nature as they are able to accept. It is held that Jesus died on the cross to reveal fully the length to which the love of God goes, and that he rose from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion.

By His death on the cross, it is held that full atonement is made for the sins of humankind. God accepts that sacrifice and is willing to forgive us.

We believe the Holy Spirit is powerfully available to those who place their trust in God, and that He is present in worship and witness.
