At First Congregational Church we practice a thoughtful Christianity based on the three tenets of Congregationalism: Faith, Freedom, and Fellowship.
Faith Faith in God, in Jesus Christ, and in the presence of God revealed to us by the Holy Spirit.
Freedom Freedom of the individual to journey in faith according to his or her conscience and experience. First Congregational Church is a self-governing church. We adhere to democratic principles of decision-making. We operate under established bylaws, elected boards, and committee representatives, and make decisions on important church issues through a direct vote or through elected representatives.
Fellowship The foundation of fellowship in our church consists of support for one another, prayers, and acceptance of others in this community of faith. Fellowship manifests itself in the activities and programs within our own church as well as within our local community. We are proud of our programs, groups, and women’s organizations within the church as well as our service and outreach to the community.
