Core Values

-God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe. (Genesis 1:1)

-The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority in all things. (2 Timothy 3:16)

-There is only one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:13-17)

-God sent his only Son to this world and if we believe in Him we will have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

-Jesus is the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus. (John 14:6)

-Salvation is a free gift from God; it is not deserved nor can it be earned.  We believe that we are saved by God’s grace by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. Because we believe in Jesus, we respond in faith through repentance, confession of Christ as Lord, baptism by immersion, and living an obedient life led by the Holy Spirit.  (Romans 10:9 & Acts 2:38 & Romans 6:1-8)

-The church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching the lost and discipling the saved by guiding them to become fully devoted followers of Christ. [Ephesians 4:1-16]

-We will focus on creating a “Refuge of Encouragement” at the UCC through compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. [Colossians 3:12 & Proverbs 10:29]
