Congregationalism, from its earliest conception was founded by men and women of faith: faith in God; faith in Jesus Christ; faith in the Christian church as the fellowship of Christ’s followers; and faith in the way we live with each other, as disciples in Godly character and principles.
The basis of membership in the Congregational Church of the Chimes is a covenant not a creed. We believe that the strength of our relationship with God is predicated on the covenant that binds us to our God and to each other. We have adopted as our covenant the same covenant formulated by the earliest Congregational Church of Salem, MA in 1629.
CROP Hunger Walks are community fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service, an international relief, development, and refugee resettlement agency.

We participate, Host and support annually.
We support Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child (OCC) each year in November by packing 100 shoeboxes with small toys, small articles of clothing (socks, mittens, hats), school supplies, personal hygiene items and wrapped candy. The program’s mission is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Every December our Board of Deacons works with The Children’s Bureau of Southern California to sponsor 9 needy families by providing them with clothes, toys, household items, basic necessities and food to help make their Christmas a time of joy and celebration.
