What We Believe
The United Church of Christ is a community of Christians under Christ, the sole head of the church. The goal of the U.C.C. is to be joind together in one church on earth with all who share allegiance to Christ. In a world where people are always fighting over religion we come together interested in uniting with other churches in fulfillment of the great prayer of Jesus Christ “that they may all be one.”
Each local congregation practices its own forms of organization, worship, education and mission. First Reformed Church came from the German Reformed Church that stressed liberty of conscience, authority of the Scriptures and their common German Protestant heritage.
Today we are a church for Christians of different traditions seeking one church on earth. We believe that congregational and individual decisions may differ but we welcome the diversity as long as it is done under Jesus Christ. Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
