UCC Statement of Faith

We believe in you, O God, Eternal Spirit, God of our Savior Jesus Christ
and our God, and to your deeds we testify:

            You call the worlds into being,
            create persons in your own image
            and set before each one the ways of life and death.

            You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.

            You judge people and nations by your righteous will
            declared through prophets and apostles.

            In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior,
            you have come to us
            and shared our common lot,
            conquering sin and death
            and reconciling the world to yourself.

            You bestow upon us your Holy Spirit,
            creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ,
            binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues
            and races.

            You call us into your church
            to accept the cost and joy of discipleship,
            to be your servants in service of others,
            to proclaim the gospel to all the world
            and resist the powers of evil,
            to share in Christ’s baptism and eat at his table,
            to join him in his passion and victory.

            You promise to all who trust you
            forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace,
            courage in the struggle for justice and peace,
            your presence in trial and rejoicing,
            and eternal life in your realm which has no end.

Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you. Amen.
You call the worlds into being, create person in your own image, and set before each one the ways of life and death.
