Affirming that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, the UCC claims as its own the faith of the historic church expressed in the ancient creeds and reclaimed in the basic insights of the Protestant reformers.About the United Church of Christ Intelligent dialogue and a strong independent streak sometimes cause the United Church of Christ (UCC) and its 1.2 million members to be called a heady and exasperating mix.The UCC tends to be a mostly progressive denomination that unabashedly engages heart and mind.Our motto “that they may all be one” is Jesus’ prayer for the unity of the church.The UCC is one of the most diverse Christian denominations in the United States.We invite all people who aren't afraid to seek further understanding of God and Jesus Christ -- those who wish to be thinking people as well as caring individuals -- to join us in worship, fellowship, and spiritual growth.We welcome all who have questions and seek answers.We are a congregation of worshippers who are part of the United Church of Christ, an inclusive, open and affirming denomination.
And yet, the UCC somehow manages to balance congregational autonomy with a strong commitment to unity among its nearly 5,600 congregations despite wide differences among many local congregations on a variety of issues.While preserving relevant portions of heritage and history dating back to the 16th century, the UCC and its forebears have proven themselves capable of moving forward, tying faith to social justice and shaping cutting edge theology and service in an ever-changing world.Welcome to the United Church of Christ, a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed.The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions: from the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians did not always have to agree to live together in communion.Education is available to all those who wish to learn.
