You are invited to participate in the life and worship of The Congregational Church of Salisbury, U.C.C.
Like many churches established during the colonial period, our Meeting House was located in the geographic center of the Town of Salisbury for ease of travel by horse and buggy. Now we welcome as members and friends people who live in neighboring towns in Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts. Some of our most active members reside part-time in New York City. Our congregation of over 300 serves as a church home for persons who come from a rich variety of religious backgrounds. (The majority of people who have become members in recent years grew up in other Protestant denominations or as Roman Catholics.) Whether we participate as singles, couples, "nuclear" families, single parent families, or "blended" families, we are united as a church family by our common desire to share one another's joys and sorrows. "The tie that binds" us together is not a creed of fixed belief but a covenant which reads in part: "We covenant with God and with one another to walk together in God's holy ways. We unite for the worship of God and for continued striving to do God's will."We are a trinitarian church which celebrates the Lord Jesus Christ as the fullest expression of God's being and will. While we cherish our roots in the Puritan tradition, we affirm that "God seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin." Our emphasis is on the Grace and Love of God made manifest in Jesus which is communicated to us through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit. We believe that, as Christ's body on earth, the goal of the church is to promote: 1. personal regeneration, and 2 . social transformation.The Bible stands at the center of focus in our Meeting House (Sanctuary,) as it should stand in the center of our lives as Christians. We affirm the importance of Bible study for all ages which enables us to interpret God's Word and its meaning for our lives. We affirm that the Christian journey is one of life-long growth in learning through the continuing revelation of the Holy Spirit. If you are visting in town or looking for a church home, we extend to you the right hand of Christian fellowship and bid you welcome.
