First UCC is a giving and receiving community of faith. We affirm that the earth and all its people belong to God. We seek to grow in Christ.
We are inspired by the Holy Spirit:
- to worship God
- to provide a safe place
- to offer hope and support
- to welcome strangers and
- to serve others.
A local church is an assembly of individuals who help one another find and pursue God’s will. Together, we can pray, learn, encourage, plan, and implement in ways that would be impossible alone. Spreading news about Jesus, doing his work, experiencing his blessings, and experiencing fulfillment in life is greatly enhanced by community.
Our commitment is to make love tangible, practical, and available to all who gather with us. We believe God’s promise is to share abundance in this life and to welcome us into eternal life when we die.
