Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here. Welcome home.
We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Savior, and acknowledge him head of the church.
We look to the Word of God in the Scriptures, and to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, to prosper its creative and redemptive work in the world.
We claim as our own the faith of the historic Church expressed in the ancient creeds and reclaimed in the basic insights of the Protestant Reformers.
In accordance with the teaching of our Lord and the practice prevailing among evangelical Christians, we recognize two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion. - from The United Church of Christ
"In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives, even as we watch for God's new heaven and new earth praying, 'Come, Lord Jesus.'" - From "A Brief Statement of Faith" Presbyterian Church USA
