Dissenter- “One who refuses to accept the doctrines or usages of an established or a national church, especially a Protestant who dissents from the Church of England.”
King Charles 1
Who is he??
In the 27th March 1625 he became king of England as well as Scotland and Ireland.
He was power hungry and always struggled for power with the parliament. Many in England feared that he was trying to get absolute power.
King Charles 1
King Charles controlled religion and made changes to the church of England. In particular however, he oppressed the Puritans.
Puritan is anyone seeking purity of religion and doctrine.
Starting in the 16th and 17th century England, these people rejected the reformation of the Chuch of England. If the people could not locate biblical authorization they rejected the teaching thus being called a Puritan.
Puritan ministers were deprived of their pulpits. King Charles would not supply them with the needs to support the religion. So the Puritan ministers turned to American to get their equipment.
Pulpits are the small elevated platform that clergies stand on to read the bible.
The Puritan ministers were not going to give up. They were determined to get their pulpits. So, a few prominent Puritans bought a trading company. They changed the name of the company from “Dorchester Company” to “Massachusetts Bay Company”.
They then secured a charter directly from the king. They needed to be independent of the King in order to practice their cult. The agreement was signed by 12 members of the church, led by John Winthrop, in 1629 in Cambridge.
A “charter” is a written agreement of rights, an immunity or and exemption.
After signing the Cambridge agreement, they immigrated to New England. This “Massachusetts Bay Company” was the only
Chartered colonization companies not subject to the control of the governors in England.
Governor of Massachusetts.
Emphasized the Christian society created in Massachusetts would be a lighthouse for all the world and a beacon of hope.
“we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.”
Congregation: a group of people who adhere to a common faith and regularly attend a church.
The Puritans organized their churches under ministers elected by each congregation created.
The Puritans compared themselves to the Anglican Church, however compared to the Anglican Church, the Puritan ministers had less authority.
Anglicanism: churches with historical connection with the church of England.
Unlike the Anglican church, the members of the Puritan church had the final say in the church decision.
Congregationalists: A Protestant denomination that has roots in the Nonconformists of England. The Congregationalists are much like the Methodists in their teachings. They consider the individual congregation the basic unit of their church, and they practice baptism of infants. Most Congregationalists in the United States belong to the United Church of Christ.
Commonwealth: a group of sovereign states and their dependencies associated by their own choice and linked with common objectives and interests: the British Commonwealth.
The Congregationalist is a form of Protestant Christianity which asserts the principle that a local congregation is completely autonomous under God and therefore should not submit to any outside, human authorities such as a regional or national synod of elders. Because Congregationalism occupies a much humbler place in the configuration of Christianity today, it is easy to forget its prominence and significance in Victorian England. Likewise Congregationalism was not as numerically significant in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
