United Church Crest

A New Creed

We are not alone,
    we live in God’s world.
 We believe in God:
    who has created and is creating,
    who has come in Jesus,
       the Word made flesh,
       to reconcile and make new,
    who works in us and others
       by the Spirit.

We trust in God. 

We are called to be the Church:
    to celebrate God’s presence,
    to live with respect in Creation,
    to love and serve others,
    to seek justice and resist evil,
    to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
       our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
    God is with us.
We are not alone.

    Thanks be to God.


THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA

The United Church of Canada was formed in 1925 from Canadian Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregationalist churches. We are the largest Protestant denomination in Canada. United Church faith communities welcome people from all backgrounds and orientations.

An overview of our beliefs

Faith and the Bible
The Bible is the shared standard for our faith, but members are not required to adhere to any particular creed or formulation of doctrine.

Baptism and Communion
The United Church celebrates two sacraments—baptism and communion—by which we encounter the presence and goodness of God.

Marriage
Each person is a unique, loved creation of God; we welcome all people to the full life of Christian community, including marriage.

Relationship and Inclusion
Respectful of the religious practice of all people of goodwill, we are a welcoming church that is challenged to ongoing renewal.

Social Justice
Following the example of Jesus, we believe that we strengthen one another to work, through God's grace, for a better world.

Giving, Generosity, and Gratitude
God’s endless generosity to us encourages our own response to contribute in many ways to God’s mission in God’s world.
