The puritans were a group of people who grew in Church of England; during the time of Reformation. They worked with religious, moral and social reforms. Their religion set that God chose them for a special purpose in life and that they must live fearing God in everything they do. This particular religion occurred during the sixteenth century. They were noticeable among the people; they were called to make an impact in their generation. These individuals have been heading America since the early English settlements. They arrive at Salem in 1629.

How did the puritans came to America or why? In England they had decided that the church became a problem with political struggles and many doctrines set by them. They were escaping persecution from church. Most of the Puritans settled in the New England area, which are Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

After they moved their religious belief were really strong just as before. For them the New Testament was a big role model. They also believed that God command them to have at least one full day of their week at taken it as a Sabbath, meaning of rest day.

The results of religious history of the Puritans so far in New England is kind of clashes in the middle of the congregational power; between the people who really focused on the weakness by the people's salvation and the one who started to fit in the human activity. By the start of the eighteenth century, Puritanism had declined and demonstrated their determination. The Puritans find it really hard for them to keep the society. In 1679 a puritan synod was meant to deliberate some of the causes of the consequences of bad spirits.
