What we believe

CONGREGATIONAL PRINCIPLES

Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”  Matthew 18:20

CONGREGATIONALISTS belong to their local Church and each Church to the Congregational Federation, by belief in the living God revealed in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

WE TRUST in the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ to be with His people who meet in His name.

WE AFFIRM the scriptural right of every Church to maintain independence in the ordering of its affairs according to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

WE RECOGNISE the oneness of all Christians within the world-wide Church and respect the natural diversity of ways to God.

WE SEEK the unity for which Christ prayed by the means He wills.

WE WORSHIP, work and serve with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ, to realise His kingdom in the world, and to help people everywhere to know the joy of His companionship.
