From Our Constitution and Bylaws; 2/6/2022
The government of this Church is vested in the body of believers who compose it; it is subject to the control of no other ecclesiastical body, but it recognizes and sustains the obligations of mutual counsel and cooperation which are common among Congregational Churches who claim a heritage and practice in the Congregational Way.
The government of the Church is vested in its members who exercise the right to control in all its affairs through Church Business Meetings (see Article IX) or as delegated in these Bylaws to elected Officers of their Church Council. We believe in the freedom and responsibility of each believer and the right to personal individual decision. We hold to the liberty of the local church and its independence of any external ecclesiastical control. We cherish the voluntary fellowship, council, and cooperation of Christian Churches who proclaim a heritage and practice in the Congregational Way.
