HNCC History

In 1898, a group of Swedish immigrants gathered to worship in a small meeting house in Haddam Neck, Connecticut. From this beginning has grown a congregation rich in diversity, yet bound together by common faith.

We are part of the Evangelical Covenant Church, whose roots go back to the spiritual renewal that swept through the Swedish Lutheran Church in the 19th century.  We confess the Bible to be the Word of God and believe in the necessity of the new birth - the new life in Christ. We celebrate the church as a family of believers, acknowledge our dependence on the Holy Spirit, and cherish freedom in Christ; a freedom which allows differences, but does not divide.

Our purpose as a church is described in our Mission Statement: 

  • To invite all people to the celebration of God's grace and love, given freely to us in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • To be made alive by the presence of the Holy Spirit, who dwells in us and among us.
  • To be nourished and strengthened by the Word of God, revealed in the Old and New Testaments, given to us in the waters of Baptism and received in the celebration of the Bread and Cup.
  • To identify and celebrate the gifts that make us who we are and challenge each other to be who God has created us to be.
  • To be the living reminder of Christ, his real presence in the world in which we live and work.
