No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here!

We’re a church where being on a faith journey is more important that conformity of belief. Faith is much more about a relationship with God – our trust in God and our fidelity to God – that it is about beliefs.

Faith
As members of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), our faith is in the God who Jesus worshiped, the God who claims us and sustains us through the power of the Holy Spirit. The teachings of Jesus nurture our lives and challenge our living in the world and in our relationships to one another. Although we have no creed, we have continuity with the Church through the ages, and feel responsible to interpret our received traditions and the Bible in the light of our day. Our faith compels us to work for Christian unity and to create peace and justice among all peoples.

 

In making this faith its own, the church is guided by the words of John Robinson (minister of the Pilgrims, the original Congregationalists in North America): "God has yet more truth and light to break forth out of his holy word."

 

Freedom
Freedom is highly valued in the faith of individual members and the governing of local churches. The United Church of Christ has a congregational form of government. Historically, it has supported causes seeking liberation and enlargement of opportunity for the oppressed.

 

Fellowship
Our fellowship is lived out through voluntary connections with nearby churches in Associations; regional churches in Conferences; and the national denomination through the General Synod. These relationships enable the autonomous local church to participate in a more effective mission, and bear witness to our responsibility to live in covenant with other Christians.
