Congregationalism

Congregationalism was founded in England in the late 16th and 17th centuries. It emphasises the right and responsibility of each properly organised congregation to determine its own affairs, without having to submit these decisions to the judgment of any higher human authority, and as such it eliminated bishops and synods. Each individual church is regarded as independent and autonomous.
