Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.
Church is not a place to check your brain at the door. We believe that being created in God’s image includes using our minds to create and explore.
Never place a period where God has placed a comma,
Why? Because God is still speaking.
What is the United Church of Christ’s “Still Speaking” initiative? What does "Open and Affirming" mean?

The United Church of Christ
is a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions. From the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians did not always have to agree with each other in order to live together in communion. Our motto–”that they may all be one”–is Jesus’s prayer for the unity of the church.
