BeliefsHow we seek to live out being Christians?
Our Mission Statement
The mission of First United Church of Christ, with the help of God is to reach out in faith and love.
Witnessing our belief in Jesus Christ:
1. Where ministry is done by all members for all people.
2. Where people can find acceptance; be at ease and experience a real fellowship at the foot of the cross.
We covenant with one another to seek and respond to Word and Will of God.
We resolve to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known and to be made known to us.
We hold it to be the mission of the Church to witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshiping God, and striving for truth, justice, and peace.
As did our fathers and mothers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us.
We pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God,and we look with faith forward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life. Amen.
Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.
We believe in God’s continuing testament. This is why we are committed to hearing God’s ancient story anew and afresh in our lives and in the world today. We try to remain attentive to God’s creative movement in the world. Religion and science are not mutually exclusive, and your head and heart are both welcomed into our places of worship. We prepare our members and leaders to be engaged in ministry in the present and future church, and we embrace all kinds of communities and new modes of thinking. Why? Because God is still speaking,
