Michigan

Macomb County

The historic faith of the Congregational churches of our country is one faith, modified, perhaps, to this extent, that we require of our members an assent to what are commonly recognized as evangelical doctrines only, with satisfactory evidences of Christian character. We believe in the old Bible, and in the whole Bible; we believe in the "old, old story," in the old Christ, and in the old salvation from sin and hell. We have not switched off into Unitarianism or Universalism, or infidelity. In our organization and beliefs we rest on the old foundations, which seem to us as reliable as ever. We have no inclination to abandon the rock and build on the sand. MEMBERSHIP. Since the organization of the church about six hundred different persons have been connected with it. The present membership is two hundred and sixty—one hundred males and one hundred_and sixty females. Two hundred and forty-five are resident.
