We are the United Church of Christ, committed to hearing God’s ancient story anew and afresh in our lives and in the world today. Why? Because God is still speaking. Visit the United Church of Christ to learn more. We are members of the Southwest Conference United Church of Christ (SCUCC) conference.
We are a Progressive Congregation. We take an open, intelligent and collaborative approach to the Christian tradition and the life and teachings of Jesus that creates a pathway into an authentic and relevant religious experience. For more information on Progressive Christianity, please visit ProgressiveChristianity.org.
We believe that everyone matters to God. Therefore, we welcome all who need to find hope and healing. We seek justice for those without a voice. We are building an engaged, passionate, and spiritually diverse community. We are devoted to one another, and all creation. We help each other grow and celebrate the joyful witness of God’s all-inclusive love through Christ Jesus.
This mission calls us to strengthen relationships with God, ourselves, and our neighbors. We help those we touch in the life of our community to find their spiritual passion, to create a purposeful life, and to be one with the creation we live in. We make connections by serving each other in a spirit of love and reach out in love to help create a more connected city, county, and region. We build foundations with our community, by giving of our resources to create a community where all are truly welcome on their life journey.
- THE CHRISTIAN FAITH IS FOUNDED ON THREE PRIMARY CALLS WE SEE THROUGH JESUS.
To love God, to love our neighbor, and to love ourselves.
- THE CHRISTIAN FAITH IS OUR WAY OF BEING FAITHFUL TO GOD. BUT IT IS NOT THE ONLY WAY.
Christianity is the truth for us. But it is not the only truth.
- LOVE OF GOD INVOLVES ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE, NOT JUST HUMAN LIFE.
Care of the Earth and its ecosystems is an expression of Christian faith and stewardship.
- LOVE OF NEIGHBOR MEANS EXTENDING KINDNESS AND CARE…
To those in our family and in our local and global communities.
Further, love of neighbor includes affirmation of the LBGTQ community, immigrants, people of other faith traditions and even those who are enemies.
- LOVE OF SELF MEANS ENGAGING IN SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES
Worship, prayer, music, study of the Bible and other literature feeds the mind, heart, and spirit.
- WE BELIEVE IN THE “PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS.”
We are all ministers of the Gospel, not just ordained clergy. As a result, we can all be in relationship directly with God through worship, study, prayer, and service to others.
The six core values of Progressive Christianity have been taken from these web sites:
