A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHURCH.t 



The First Congregational Church in Greenfield waa or- 
ganized at the time of the settlement of the first Pastor, 
which was March 28, 1754 ; eleven members were organ- 
ized. Rev. Jonathan Edwards, Sen., of Stockbridge, was 
on the council to constitute the Church. 

The Second Congregational Church was organized Janu- 
ary 15, 1817, by the withdrawal of 48 members, purely on 
the ground of convenience, and the prospect of a rapidly 
increasing population. Letters were given them by the 
First Church, though reluctant to part with so large a 
portion of their membersliip, "considering tl)at very un- 
promising which to tlie Colony seemed hopeful." 

The following persons composed that original number : 

[Tho conjunction "and" denotes husband and wife] 

*Samuel Wells and Clarissa Wells. 

*Electa Wells. *Sarah Wells. 

*Ezekiel Bascom. *Cornelia Hall. 

*Tirzah Severance. Christiana White.

The charge to the new Church was given by the Rev. 
TiiEOPUiLus Packard, of Shelburne, and the Rev. Josiau 
H. Cannon, of Gill. The following are extracts from this 
interesting document : 

" Let your prayers be to God to furnisli you a Pastor 
after his own heart and who shall fully and faithfully open 
to you the genuine import of the Holy Gospel, equally 
avoiding narrow Ijigotry on the one hand, and latitudina- 
rian charity on the other. Fully and humbly consider 
your high standing as a body of professing Christians, as 
lights in the world, as salt of the earth, as a city rising 
upon a lull which cannot be hid, as peculiar people, sol- 
emnly bound to be zealous of good works. But forget not 



*Died. 



your dependence upon heavenly resources ; you are not 
your own, but bouglit with a price, even the precious blood 
of Christ, that you may show forth the honor of his Holy 
Gospel. Always remember the special obligation resting 
upon you to live not as do others nor to yourselves, but to 
Him who has called you to glory and virtue." 

"The laws of the Lord are upon you, and, in a sense, 
voluntarily renewed, as witnesses to testify to the honor of 
God, to the faith of the Gospel, to the practical nature of 
that godliness, which is profitable unto all things. We 
beseech you, brethren, ever to bear in mind the high claims 
of your Father in Heaven and your interceding Kedeemer, 
and feel and act accordingly. Be sober; be circumspect; 
be watchful ; pray humbly and fervently for heavenly grace 
to descend and comfort and enlarge your little heritage." 
"Finally we charge you before God and the angels wlio 
minister unseen to the heirs of salvation, that you obey 
Christ in all things ; preserve the faith of the Gospel ; live 
the religion you profess, and in your daily conversiition and 
conduct place it as a divine reality before others, that they 
may glorify Our Father who is in Heaven." 

"Dear brothers and sisters in the fellowship of the Gos- 
pel, we now commend you to God and tlio word of His 
grace, which is able to build you up and give you an in- 
heritance among them that are sanctified." 

The sanctuary, which still stands, was built in 1819 ; 
previous to which religious services were held in the old 
Court House. Rev. Dan Huntington was for some time 
the stated supply. 

Rev. Charles Jenkins, the first Pastor of the Church, 
was ordained May 19, 1820, and was dismissed July, 1824. 
Six persons were received into the Church by profession of 
1* 



faith during his ministry. He died in Portland, Me., Dec. 
29, 1831, aged 45. His grave is near that of the Rev. Dr. 
Payson, whose funeral sermon he preached ; and his pyra- 
midal monument is similar to Dr. Payson's, bearing the 
following epitaph : 

" The memory of the just is blessed." 

He was a man of marked ability, singular piety, and emi- 
nently successful in his labors at Portland. 

Rev. William C. Fowler, the second Pastor, was settled 
Aug. 31, 1825, and dismissed Oct. 24, 1827. Twelve per- 
sons united with the Church during his pastorate of about 
two years. 

Rev. Caleb S. IIekry, D. D., was ordained as the third 
Pastor, Jan. 21, 1829, and was dismissed Dec. 12, 1831. lie 
received into the communion by profession of faith, twenty- 
two persons, most of whom were hopefully converted during 
an unusual interest in the community a few months before 
he resigned his charge. 

Rev. TuoMAS Bellows was ordained and settled March 
12, 1833, and dismissed Sept. 2, 1834. Five members were 
added by profession during his ministry. 

Rev. Samuel Washburn was settled Aug. 2; 1837, and 
dismissed Nov. 23, 1841. He died in the city of New York 
Sept. 15, 1853, in his 47th year. He was a preacher of 
great independence of character, faithful to his charge, 
and respected in all the relations of life. His "end was 
peace." While he was Pastor, fourteen persons were re- 
ceived by profession into the church. 

Rev. Lorenzo L. Langstroth was installed Dec. 20, 
1843, and dismissed Feb. 15, 1848. During his ministry 
there were added to the communion, by profession, twelve 



persons. Soon after his settlement the meeting-house was 
remodeled and much improved. 

Kev. Geokge C. Partridge was settled May 18, 1848, and 
was dismissed May, 1854. AVhile he was Pastor, thirty 
persons were received into the Church by profession of 
faith. Though no general revival was enjoyed, (and it is 
a singular fact, never had been,) these additions were main- 
ly the fruit of a religious interest which pervaded the Sab- 
bath School and encouraged much the faith of God's pray- 
ing people. The sanctuary was again repaired during his 
pastorate and put in its present condition. 

Rev. P. C. IIeadley was installed May 7, 1857. The 
sermon was by Prof. Haven of Amherst, by whom and oth- 
ers of the College faculty, the Church had been supplied 
with faithful preaching much of the time they were desti- 
titute of a Pastor. During the summer succeeding the 
settlement, the spirit of God was evidently among the peo- 
ple, in answer to prayer. A revival has been in progress, 
with but little interruption to the present date, July, 1858. 
Seventy-two persons have been added by profession, and we 
hope for still greater blessings from the Head of the Church, 
wliose interposition in time of trial, and special answers to 
prayer, call for the grateful acknowledgments, and renewed 
fidelity of his people.

CONCESSION OE EAITH. 



Adopted Feb. 22, 1836. 



I. We believe there is one God, the Creator and right- 
ful Disposer of all things, existing as Father, Son and Holy 
Ghost, and that to these three Persons as the one God, all 
divine perfections are to be equally ascribed. 

Isa. xlv. 5, — I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no 
God besides me. Jer. x. 10. — The Lord is the true God, he is the 
living God, and an everlasting King. Dout. vi. 4. — The Lord our 
God is one Lord. Gen. i. 1. — In the beginning God created the 
heaven and the earth. Neh. ix. 6. — Thou, even thou art Lord 
alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens with all 
t^eir host, the earth, and all things that are therein, and thou pre- 
sorvest them all. 

John X. 30. — I and my Father are one. John i. 1. — In the be- 
ginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word 
was God; 14 — And tho Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. 

Acts V. 3, 4. — Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine 
heart to lie to the Holy Ghost? Thou hast not lied unto men but 
■unto God. Job xxxiii. 4. — The Spirit of God hath made me. Job 
xxvi. 13. — By his Spirit he hath garnished the heavens. 

n. We believe that the Bible was given by inspiration 
of God as the only unerring rule of faith and practice. 



12 



2 Tim. iii. 16. — All scripture is given by inspiration of God. 
2 Peter i. 21. — The prophecy came not in old time by the will of 
man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy 
Ghost. Gal. i. 11, 12. — I certify you, brethren, that the Gospel 
which was preached of me, is not after man. For I neither receiv- 
ed it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Je- 
sus Christ. 

III. We believe that mankind are fallen from their 
original rectitude, and are, while in a state of nature, 
wholly destitute of that holiness which is required by the 
divine Law. 

Gen. i. 27. — So God created man in his own image; in the image 
of God created he him. Eccl. vii. 29. — God hath made man up- 
right, but they have sought out many inventions. Rom. viii. 7. — 
The carnal mind is at enmity against God. Rom. iii. 10, 11. — 
There is none righteous, no, not one. There is none that uuder- 
standeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 

rV". We believe that Jesus Christ, the Eternal Word, 
became man, and by his obedience, sufferings, and death, 
made an atonement for the sins of the world. 

John i. 1, 14. — la the beginning was the Word, and the Word 
was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made 
flesh and dwelt among us. 1 Tim. iii. 16. — Great is the mys- 
tery of Godliness; God was manifest in the fleshy justified in the 
Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in 
the world, received up into glory. 1 Tim. ii. 5, 6. — There is one 
God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Je- 
sus; who gave himself a ransom for all. 1 John ii. 1, 2. — Jesus 
Christ the righteous; and ho is the propitiation 'for our sins; and 
not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 

V. We believe that of accountable beings, they and they 
only will be saved, in consequence of the merits of Christ, 
who repent of sin and believe in Ilim. 

Acts ii. 38. — Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the 



13 



namo of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins. Acts iii. 19. — Re- 
pent ye, tlicrcfure, and bo converted, tliat yuiir sins may be blotted 
out. Acts .\.x. 21. — Testifying both to the Jews iind also to the 
Greeks, repontanco toAvurd God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus 
Christ. Joiui iii. 10, 18. — For God so loved the world, that he 
gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should 
not perish, but have everlasting life, lie that believeth on him 
is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already. 

VI. We believe that although the invitation.s of the 
Gospel are such that all who will may come and take of 
the water of life freely, yet the wickedness of the human 
heart is such that none will come unless drawn by the in- 
fluences of the Holy Spirit. 

Matt. xi. 28. — Como unto me all ye that labor and are heavy 
laden, and I will give yon rest. llev. x.xii. 17. — Whosoever will, 
let him take of the water of life freely. Acts ii. 21. — Whosoever 
shall call on the name of the Lord shall bo saved. 

John v. 40. — Yo will not come unto me that ye might have life. 
John vi. 44. — No man can come to mo, except the Father, which 
hath sent me, draw him. 

VII. AVe believe that the Sacraments of the New 'IVs- 
tament are Baptism and the Lord's Supper ; Baptism to be 
administered only to believers and their households, and 
the Supper only to believers in regular church standing. 

Matt, xxviii. 10. — Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, bap- 
tizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the 
Holy Ghost. Acts ii. 41. — Then they that gladly received His 
word were baptized. Luko xviii. 16. — Suffer little children to 
como unto me and forbid them not. Acts xvi. 15. — She was bap- 
'tized and her household. 1 Cor. i. IG. — I baptized also tho house- 
hold of Stephanus. 1 Cor. xi. 23, 26. — The Lord Jesus, the same 
night in which he was betrayed, took bread; and when he had 
givi n thanks, he brake it, and said. Take, eat; this is my body, 
which is broken for you; this do in remembrance of mo. After 

Q 



14 



the same manner, also, ho took the cup, when he had supped, say- 
ing, Tliis cup is Uio new teistuinent in my blood; this do yu ii5 olt 
as ye drink it, in rciucnibnnR-o of inc. For as often as ye eat tliis 
bread ami drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till ho come. 

VIII. AVo believe that («od liuH appointed a day in 
wliieh he will judge the ■world ; Avhon there will l»e a res- 
iiiTCction of the dead, and wlien the rigliteous "will enter 
on eternal happiness, and tlie Aviekcd will be sentenced to 
eternal misery. 

Jolin V. 28. — Marvel not at tliis ; for the hour is coming in 
which all that jiro in their graves shall hour his voice, and shall 
come forth ; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of 
life; and they that have done evil, unto tiic resurrection of dam- 
nation. Rom. xiv. 10. — We shall all stand bcforti the judgment 
seat of Christ. Matt. xxv. 31, 32, 33, 34, 41, 4U.— AVhcn the Son 
of Man shall come in his glory, and all tho holy angels with him, 
then shall ho sit upon tho throne of his glory: And before him 
shall be gathered all nations; and he shall separate tlicm one from 
another, as a shei)herd di\ ideth his sheep from the goats: And he 
shall set tho sheep on his right hand, but tho goats on tlie left. 
Then shall the king say unto them on his right hand. Come, ye 
blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for yon from 
tho foundation of the world. Then shall he say, also, unto them 
on tho left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, 
prepared for tho devil and his angels: and these shall go away in- 
to everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal. 

All these things you truly profess and cordially believe. 

You -will now enter into covenant with God and with 
this Church. 



cov^ii:]srA.isrT. 



In the presence of God and this assembly, you do now 
solcnnily avouch the Lord Jehovah, Father, Son and Holy 
Ghost, to be your God, the sujireme oltjoct of your affec- 
tion and your portion forever. You cordially acknowledge 
the Lord Jesus Chri.st to be j^our Redeemer, and the Holy 
Spirit to be your Sanctifier, Comforter and Guide. You 
cheerfully devote yourselves to God, in the everlasting cov- 
enant of His grace, consecrating all your powers and fac- 
ulties to his service and gloi*}'; and you promise tliat 
through the assistance of his Spirit you will cleave to Him 
as your chief good; tluit you will give diligent attendance 
on His word and ordinances; that you will seek the honor 
and interest of His kingdom ; and that henceforth, deny- 
ing ungodliness, and every worldly lust, you will live so- 
berly, rigliteously and godly in the world. 

You do now also cordially join yourself to this church, 
and engage to submit to its rules of government and disci- 
pline ; to strive earnestly for its peace, edification and pu- 
rity, and to walk with its members in charity, faithfulness, 
circumspection, meekness and purity. 

This you profess and engage. 



16 

[If a part of the candidates have been baptized, the Minister 
ivill say : — ] 

In regard to some of you, we gratefully recognize the 
fruit of that dedication to God which was made in your 
early years. The seal of Jehovah's covenant with His 
people was placed upon you, and as you have ratified that 
act, this outward sign need not be repeated. 

[If any are to be baptized : — ] 
You who have not been baptized, will now receive the 
solemn ordinance by wliich you are admitted to the com- 
munion and privileges of this Cluirch of Christ. 

[The Church will then rise.'] 

In consequence of these professions and promises, we 
(the members of this church) affectionately receive you to 
our communion, and, in the name of Christ, declare you 
entitled to all its visible privileges. We welcome you to 
this fellowship with us in the blessings of the Cospel, and 
on our part engage to watch over you, and seek 3'our edi- 
fication as long as you continue among us. Should you 
change your place of residence, it will be your duty to seek 
and ours to grant a reconnaendation to another church ; 
for hereafter you can nover Avithdraw from the \vuteh and 
communion of the saints without a breach of covenant. 

And now, beloved in the Lord, let it never be forgotten 
that you have come under solemn obligations from which 
you cannot escape. AVhercver you go, these vows will bo 
upon you. They will follow you to the bar of God, and 
will abide with you forever. The Lord guide and preserve 
you till death, and at last receive you and us to that 
blessed world, where our love and joy shall be forever per- 
fect. — Amkv.

OF RELIGION. 

1. You wish to profess religion — Why?

to aim at higher attaiiiiiioiits in these particulars? 

4. Are you cordially willing to cast in your lot with 
the people of (Jod, to be a companiou* of all them that 
fear him and keep his precepts ; and to be subject, in the 
Lord, to the oversigiit and discipline of his house?

Eedeeraer, in whom you have hope? 

G. Do you realize tiiat tlic act of profession is your own;

one thing, and to possess it is another? and is it j'our de- 
sire not only to have the form but the power of godliness?

desire for the saltation of souls ?
