What We Believe and Why

United Church of Christ Statement of Faith

We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit, who is made known to us in Jesus our Lord and Savior, and to whose deeds we testify: God calls the worlds into being, creates humankind in the divine image and sets before us the ways of life and death. God seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin. God judges all humanity and all nations by that will of righteousness declared through prophets and apostles.

In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord, God has come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the whole creation to its Creator.

God bestows upon us the Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church and Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.
