God is Still Speaking and the United Church of Christ

  • Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.

  • We believe in God’s continuing revelation of the Good News. 
  • 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
  • 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
  • we embrace all kinds of communities and new modes of thinking. 
  • Why? Because God is still speaking,

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

  • We believe in extravagant welcome. 
  • We insist that God’s communion table is open, not closed
  • God’s gift and claim in baptism are irrevocable. 
  • We advocate justice for all. 
  •  We extend hospitality as a sign of God’s inclusive love. 
  • Our perspective is global, not provincial. 
  • We work with — not against — people of other faiths. 

Why? Because God is still speaking,

Never place a period where God has placed a comma.

  • We believe the church’s mission is to change lives —
    • individually, systemically and globally. 
  • We work to make transformation possible, but trust in God’s grace. 
    • Churches must be places of vitality in worship,
    • learning
    • advocacy. We are committed to working for justice, and we believe that lives are changed through global experiences and friendships.
