operation-friendshipWhat are our beliefs?

We are the United Church of Christ which is a progressive, affirming, welcoming denomination. Here are some of our basic thoughts in the United Church of Christ:

God: We believe that God is a loving God who made the human being in God’s image. All people are therefore of value and loved by God.

Jesus: In Christ, the head of the church, God conquers sin and reconciles the world to Divine Love. We believe in God, but we follow Jesus.

Holy Spirit: God’s continuing presence and activity in the world.

Trinity: Creator, Christ, Holy Spirit are one.

Church: A community of people united in Christ through worship, work, and witness.

The Bible: We take the scriptures seriously but not literally.

Service to Others: The mission of the Church is to work for justice and to establish God’s Kingdom in the world.

The Sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. It is through baptism that persons are joined in faith with Jesus and accepted into the fellowship of the church. The breaking of bread and pouring of wine are done in remembrance of Christ’s death and his resurrection.
