Plymouth Congregational Church is a United Church of Christ, an Open and Affirming Congregation.
We are people diverse in background, outlook and experiences, but what we share is our common call by God in Christ to be The Church. The Church, as always, is the people gathered for mission and worship, bound together in Love of the Holy Spirit, called to a common path of seeking the will of God known or to be made known.
Plymouth’s Pastor Ray A. Eusden (1932) wrote a strong statement about the purpose of Plymouth Church: “What is the dominating motive of Plymouth? Our dominant motive is not speculative but practical. The basis of our fellowship is not theology but love and service. We have people in our ranks who represent many shades of theological opinion. We encourage this independence of thinking. Whatever may be our theological opinions we are bound together in making the world more Christ-like. Conservatives and liberals, fundamentalists and modernists are all welcome in our membership, providing they are willing to give other people the right to think as they choose and providing they are willing to work with the total membership of the church in the practical purpose of extending the Kingdom of Jesus on earth.”
The Plymouth Covenant
In the love of truth and in the spirit of Jesus, we unite for the worship of God and the service to all. We seek to know the will of God and to walk in God’s ways, made known or to be made known to us; to love one another; to proclaim the Gospel to all the world; to work and pray for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace, and the realization of our shared humanity. And we look with faith for the triumph of righteousness and the gift of life eternal.
