Statement of Faith

The First Congregational Church of Stanton exists to glorify God through worship, righteous living, and service to Him and others. We may employ a pastor in order to help us grow in our faith and knowledge of God; to lead us in worship of God; to model for us a life of faith and righteousness; and to encourage us toward godly service to one another and within our community.

Generally, we adhere to the confessional creeds of the historic church such as the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Westminster Confession. As Congregationalists, we respect the freedom of individuals to earnestly and prayerfully study the Scriptures and ge led by God into sound understanding. We hold to the maxim: In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.
