About Us

Getting to Know Us

The members of our church family come from a variety of religious and cultural backgrounds. Some of us have grown up in Christian homes and have known for as long as we can remember that we belong to the Lord. Others have only recently come to know the love and mercy of God. Together, however, we share the common bond of faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

 

We are a congregation that stands upon the tradition of the great Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. We find comfort in the truth of God's sovereignty and the certain salvation of those who are His. We are committed to the historic Christian faith as summarized in such documents as the Savoy Declaration of Faith, the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dordt. At the same time, we know that our duty is to love God and our neighbor, and we seek guidance from His Word as to how to do that in every area of life. 

 

Our desire is that you too may have peace with God, found only in repentance of sin and trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, and that you may experience the abundant life that He gives to all those who trust in Him. 

 

Please take a few moments to view our doctrinal commitments (Beliefs) and what we have discovered is important to us as we have sought to encourage one another in our walk as Christians (Values). 

 

Our church is a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (CCCC), which has existed as a separate denomination for more than 60 years. 

What We Value

Over the years particular aspects of living as Christians have become important to us. What we include is not necessarily unique to this church but we hope that it offers a sense of the ethos of our fellowship.

What is a Congregational Church?

A “Congregational” church? What’s that?  A short answer: Christians who have joined themselves together to worship God and encourage one another to live according to Christ’s teachings. A longer answer . . .

What Should a Church Look Like?

Some people think a church should be large and awe-inspiring, like the great, magnificent cathedrals of Europe.  Others envision the white-steepled meetinghouse of a small New England town.  Some might even consider our small, converted storefront as representing the true picture of a church. It's understandable that when we hear the word "church" we think of a building.  But, in truth, a church is not a building . . .
