About Our Church

Church History:

The Church was organized in February 1781 by thirty members.  It later transformed to the Union Calvinistic Society of Carlisle in 1830.


Since the church was incorporated in 1903 as the Carlisle Congregational Church, the Union Calvinistic Society was dissolved in 1904.

For the past two centuries it has been faithful to a sound Biblical witness. It is associated with the National Association of Evangelicals, and is a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference.

We Believe: 

The church agrees with these historic statements of the Christian faith: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Savoy Declaration, and the original Covenant and Statement of Faith adopted in 1781 and 1782. 


The church continues to be involved in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in our community, our nation, and around the world.


Our goal is the same in theology and spirit as that covenant first agreed to in 1781, biblical, evangelical, and Reformed.

What To Expect:

We come together each week to remind ourselves that the only one worthy of our worship is God the Father, his Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

We do this through:

  • talking to our Creator through prayer

  • praising Him through song

  • reading his Word, the Christian Bible, and try to unpack its meaning
