People tend to answer this question with "for freedom of religion". This leaves something wanting. It is simply too vague. If you look in the history books, you will see, the Pilgrims came to America for Christian freedom. They didn't like the way the Church of England was teaching. It was too controlling. They came to America to Praise the triune God the way they felt was best, without influence from the Church of England which is most comparable to the Episcopal church in the U.S.

They came to America for religious freedom.

They didn't like the church of England so they went to America so they wouldn't be forced into England's religion

They came to New England because they were persecuted, they were treated badly because of their religious beliefs, and they didn't want to be part of the Church of England

They were coming for two main things: to mine the land's riches and settle land, and to escape the harsh rule of the King of England.

The Pilgrims wanted to escape religious persecution in England. Their particular Protestant beliefs did not line up with the Church of England.

To worship God freely.
Because they wanted more religious freedom.
Pilgrim means "religious journey", so when they say that pilgrims came to America, it was for a religious journey. Most Pilgrims were upset over the new Anglican Church that King Henry VIII made, so they traveled to America in hopes of continuing there old Christian practices or starting new religious practices, where they could have religious freedom.

The Pilgrims were a religious sect who felt persecuted in England. At that time, only the Church of England prevailed. The Pilgrims were able to gain a charter to settle a colony in the British east coast of North America. They finally arrived and their religious persecution ended.
