Cambridge platform.

The second Synod of Massachusetts met at Cambridge in 1646, and was not dissolved until 1648. The synod composed and adopted a system of church discipline called “The Cambridge platform,” and recommended it, together with the Westminster Confession of Faith, to the general court and to the churches. The latter, in New England, generally complied with the recommendation, and “The Cambridge platform,” with the ecclesiastical laws, formed the theological constitution of the New England colonies.
