What We Believe

Our congregation seeks truth from the Holy Spirit in all the traditions of the Christian faith, and we therefore seek fellowship with, and admit to membership, all baptized Christians of whatever tradition.  We affirm the revelation of God in our Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit to all believers.  Because it contains foundational expressions of this revelation, we regard the Bible as God’s supreme literary means of guiding the Church.  Though we affirm the fundamental validity of all creeds that have sought to verbalize this revelation, we acknowledge that, as Jesus Christ alone is the authority for the Church, no historical creed can do more than point to him.  Chief among the creeds we shall use in worship are the Apostles’ Creed and the United Church of Christ Statement of Faith. (CUCC Constitution, Section II: “Our Faith”)
