Freedom to Believe
We value the historic creeds of the church, but do not demand specific expressions of acceptance of these creeds. We acknowledge our responsibility for rethinking, claiming, and bearing witness to our beliefs as God’s word continues to unfold among us.
Authority of Scriptures
The Bible is our inspiration for faith and practice. It is our primary source for understanding the good news we know through Christ. We seek more inspiration and truth from the scriptures, which are a living witness to faith. We take the Bible seriously, approach the text eagerly, and seek to discern together the meaning of God’s message for our lives today.
Growth in Faith
With the freedom we claim in Christ comes the responsibility to continue to grow in faithfulness. We offer many opportunities for growth including worship Bible studies, Wednesday evening educational sessions, experiences of historic spiritual practices, small group fellowship, and opportunities to put faith into action utilizing creative talents to serve our neighbors. We join together as we journey toward the Beloved Community.
For the Modern Era
the story which grounds our faith is 2000 years old, but our thinking is not. On one hand, we use traditional liturgical symbols of our faith -- clerical robes, stoles, and seasonal cloths & hangings at the pulpit and communion table in our traditional services. On the other, services use innovative and exciting media and music to give new meaning to the world around us. in the United Church of Christ, we are known as thinking people of faith, committed to strengthen our faith to transform the world. God is still speaking in new and faith filled ways.
Making the joyful noise
