WHO IS THE UNITED

CHURCH OF CHRIST...

​Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.

We are committed to hearing God's ancient story anew and afresh in our lives and in the world today.

You are welcome here.

We believe in extravagant welcome. We insist that God's communion table is open, not closed, and God's gift and claim in baptism are irrevocable.

Never place a period where God has placed a comma.

We believe the church's mission is to change lives.


WHAT WE BELIEVE...

We believe in God as our loving and forgiving Creator, in Jesus as the Son of God and our Savior, and in God's continued presence with us through the Holy Spirit. We believe we are each called to share in Christ's ministry. We believe with God's presence in our lives, we are called to worship, to pray, to spread God's Word, to heal, and to comfort.  In compassion, we reach out to support one another and the wider community. 

OUR Mission STATEMENT...

We are St. Matthew United Church of Christ, a welcoming, caring Christian community who is committed to our call to be the Body of Christ, doing Christ's work in our world.
