Congregational Church in the United States
History in the United States
In 1660 approximately 75 percent of the total population of the thirteen British colonies was either Anglican or Congregationalist.
The Puritans who established the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the Separatists of Plymouth Colony were the first of many groups known as Congregationalists. Several of these congregations later united to become either the Disciples of Christ, the Christian Church, or the United Church of Christ.
