We see creeds as historic testimonies of faith, rather than tests of faith.
We engage our minds and critical thinking as a part of our faith, and we take theology very seriously and sometimes respectfully disagree with one another. Most of us employ a non-literal reading of the Bible and value it deeply as the central stories of our faith.
Our Congregational heritage emphasizes our freedom to interpret the Bible as individuals under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, as well as autonomy as a congregation, bound by covenant with others.
We think that God is still speaking and has more to say to us today as we live out our faith.
