The Evangelical Congregational Church was formed in 1922 when some members of the United Evangelical Church voted against reunion with the Evangelical Association.

The Evangelical Congregational Church has its roots in a blend of German-American pietism and Methodism. Like the Evangelical Church, they trace their origins to Jacob Albright. The group was also influenced by the Holiness movement, and split from the Evangelical Association in 1894 over congregationalism and the doctrine of sanctification.

The Evangelical Congregational Church is found almost exclusively in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois, although they do place emphasis on evangelism.
