Who We Are
No matter who you are, no matter where you are on your life journey. You are welcome in this United Church of Christ. As Jesus accepted all people regardless of their differences, we accept all who choose to join us. Each one of us is unique in the eyes of God. We are an Open, Welcoming, and Affirming congregation.
The First Church of Christ is very old and very young by its nature.
"Some churches are creedal: you are required to subscribe to a statement of beliefs before you can be in fellowship with the church."
"We are a covenantal church. Our agreement is to support one another as we grow in faith, with the Scriptures as our guide and the Holy Spirit as our inspiration."
"Some churches are selective about who may join. Or they may make it hard for some people to join in good conscience through statements such as, “Hate the sin, love the sinner.”
"Some people have the notion that church is for the already-perfect; since none of us is perfect, then people in churches must be hypocrites."
