Our Story

Open and Affirming

We affirm the dignity, worth, importance, and personal gifts of all people—inclusive of gender, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnic background, marital status, economic circumstance, and/or difference of ability. As we continue to learn and grow in understanding, we pledge to provide a safe, supportive community in which all persons—as they share in worship, fellowship, and leadership—may find the guidance and love of God in their lives.

A Union Congregation

United Christian Church is part of two denominational families, the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and relates to all our local and regional ecumenical groups. Through these connections we can have experiences that go beyond what any one local church can offer—opportunities to serve and opportunities to learn and grow.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to bear witness to the abundant love of God as evidenced in the life and teachings of Jesus by extending radical hospitality and seeking justice as a faith community.

Our Mission

The mission of United Christian Church is to actively participate in the transforming ministry of Jesus in the world by:

  • Affirming the presence of God in all persons

  • Supporting all people in their search for truth and meaning

  • Encouraging spiritual practices that lead to wholeness

  • Building a caring community that pursues peace through justice

  • Being good stewards of God’s creation
