UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST STATEMENT OF FAITH
IN THE FORM OF A DOXOLOGY

We believe in you, O God, Eternal Spirit,
God of our Savior Jesus Christ and our God,
and to your deeds we testify:

You call the worlds into being,
create persons in your own image,
and set before each one the ways of life and death.

You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.

You judge people and nations by your righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.

In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior,
you have come to us
and shared our common lot,
conquering sin and death
and reconciling the world to yourself.

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

You call us into your church
to accept the cost and joy of discipleship,
to be your servants in the service of others,
to proclaim the gospel to all the world
and resist the powers of evil,
to share in Christ's baptism and eat at his table,
to join him in his passion and victory.

You promise to all who trust you
forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace,
courage in the struggle for justice and peace,
your presence in trial and rejoicing,
and eternal life in your realm which has no end.

Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you.
Amen.
One of the qualities of our Congregational heritage and the United Church of Christ of which we are a part is a willingness to embrace individuals from diverse backgrounds and theological convictions.

As diverse as we are, however, we are united in those most basic and fundamental beliefs of the historic Christian faith, a belief in the triune God and redemptive work of God accomplished in Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ.
Our Faith:
