What We Believe
We are a community of the Christian faith who has received God's numerous blessings. May we always remember that we are individuals in this church, bound together as brothers and sisters in Christ. In pursuit of a life of goodness, we recognize that we need each other's loving support and guidance to reach our full potential.
Faith – We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love, and in Jesus Christ, His son, our Lord and Savior, who for us and our salvation lived and died and rose again and liveth evermore; and in the Holy Spirit, who taketh of the things of Christ and revealeth them to us, renewing, comforting, and inspiring all souls.
Covenant – We are united in striving to know well the will of God as taught in the Holy Scriptures and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church of Christ to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind, exalting the worship of the one true God and laboring for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace, and the realization of human brotherhood. Depending, as did our forefathers, upon the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the Kingdom of God, and we look with faith for the triumph of righteousness and life everlasting.
As members and participants in Tewksbury Congregational Church, affirming Jesus Christ as the center of our lives, we find purpose and direction in what we do:
To grow spiritually, enriching and deepening our Christian faith and understanding,
To reach out to the wider community becoming an invitation to the experience of God,
To nurture one another, revealing and developing our special abilities,
To welcome strangers into our fold offering a variety of faith experiences, and
To show God's love by following Christ's example.
