Our Vision Is Clear

As people of the United Church of Christ, affirming our Statement of Faith, we seek within the Church Universal to participate in God’s mission and to follow the way of the crucified and risen Christ.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are called and commit ourselves to:

  • Praise God, confess our sins and joyfully accept God’s forgiveness;
  • Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our suffering world;
  • Embody God’s love for all people;
  • Hear and give voice to creation’s cry for justice and peace;
  • Name and confront the powers of evil within and among us;
  • Repent our silence and complicity with the forces of chaos and death;
  • Preach and teach with the power of the Living Word;
  • Join oppressed and troubled people in the struggle for liberation;
  • Work for justice, healing and the wholeness of life;
  • Embrace the unity of Christ’s church;
  • Discern and celebrate the present and coming reign of God.
