Congregational Churches are built on a congregational polity, that is, it is the congregation, rather than a prelate or bishop, that determines the course of the church. Congregational churches tend to be fairly independent, though there are associational structures throughout the state and the country that encourage fellowship and the exchange of ideas. Nationally, Green’s Farms Church is associated with the United Church of Christ and contributes to its work.
Our Covenant is specific enough to identify us as a Christian Church with solid principles but broad enough to welcome people with different ideas about particular issues or beliefs.
We hereby set forth the principles of the Christian faith as commonly held among us, believing that the foundation for our lives is Jesus Christ.
It is our aim to bring joy to little children, instruction and high ideals to youth, inspiration to men and women in the midst of life and comfort to those in life’s later years; and to work together for the betterment of all people.
Our fellowship is not dependent upon identity of theological opinion, or of outward circumstance, or of denominational name, but grows from a common loyalty to Jesus, a common passion to serve the world, and a common purpose to do justly, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God.
Our ideal is a church of the open mind, the warm heart, the aspiring soul, and the social vision which ever seeks to express, in all walks of life, the mind and spirit of Jesus.
