Universalist Memorial Church,  Winchester, New Hampshire

Universalist Memorial Church, Winchester, New Hampshire

1803 – The Universalist Church of America adopted the Winchester Profession at Winchester, New Hampshire. The Winchester Profession outlined Universalist belief in three tenets: that the Old and New Testaments reveal the character of God and the final destination of humanity, that there is one God and he is revealed in Jesus Christ, and that holiness and happiness are inseparably connected. It held to the Bible when Unitarian belief in the Bible was being undermined by the influence of higher criticism.
