Saybrook Platform

1708. A confessional document produced by the Congregational churches of Connecticut, it contained a confession (a reaffirmation of the Savoy Confession) and articles (a fifteen-point statement of ecclesiastical polity). The articles provided for the establishment of consociations in each county, with powers of oversight of the local congregations; ministerial associations in each county, with powers to examine ministerial candidates on doctrine and morals; and a general annual association, with undefined responsibility but composed of delegates from each consociation. Participation in the general association was voluntary. The Saybrook Platform replaced the Cambridge Platform* of 1648 as the most important confessional document of New England.
