Our denominational history dates to the Reformation in both England and Germany, while our evangelical roots were established with the original German settlers of the area. Yet another strand of history reaches to the Pilgrims who came to this country and founded the Congregational Church in 1620. (see also History of St. Lucas)
St. Lucas Community Church is a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (CCCC or 4C’s). CCCC is a fellowship of churches and pastors that was founded in 1948. It is the oldest organization of continuing Congregational Churches in America today. CCCC is solidly committed to the basic doctrines of the Christian faith, but allows for diversity in those areas where Christians have tended to disagree. Its members hold strong convictions, but do not believe that Christians should divide over secondary issues. As an evangelical denomination, CCCC is strongly committed to evangelism and missions for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference, the local church is autonomous and able to decide how it will structure itself and minister to its own people. The congregation also has the freedom to choose its own minister.
