united church of christ

In 1957, 3 Protestant denominations (the Evangelical and Reformed Church, the General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches and the Afro Christian Convention) merged and formed the United Church of Christ.  There are over 5,000 churches and 900,000 members in this diverse group of worshippers. All churches could choose to either adopt the United Church of Christ name, or to hold onto their roots.  Whether or not the name was adopted by the individual churches, as a United Church, we became

A Church Of Firsts:

We were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American,

the first to ordain a woman,

the first to ordain an openly gay man,

the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry.

We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.

We believe in God's continuing testament, so we try to remain attentive to God's creative movement in the world.

For us, religion and science are not mutually exclusive, and your head and heart are both welcomed into our places of worship. 

We prepare our members and leaders to be engaged in ministry in the present and future church, and we embrace all kinds of communities and new modes of thinking.  Why? Because God is still speaking.
