United Church of Christ
(Denomination to which our church belongs)
The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With more than 5,100 churches and 1.1 million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).
We are one of the 38 regional bodies, or conferences, of the United Church of Christ. Our conference encompasses the entire state of New York and consists of approximately 276 local churches. We are committed to being led by the Spirit to faithful witness, compassionate justice, and bold Christian leadership. Guided by this mission, the ministries of the New York Conference, in all its settings, respond to the Still Speaking God and the gospel call for peace and justice. In the face of challenges, be they cultural, economic or environmental, the New York Conference stands ready to respond, relying on God’s promise that Jesus the Christ came into our midst so that we might have life and have it in abundance. We embrace the historical commitments of the United Church of Christ and have declared ourselves to be a Just Peace, Multi-Racial/Multi-Ethnic, Open and Affirming, Accessible to All, and Global Mission Conference.
Global Ministries is a combined effort between the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Their mission is to receive and share the Good News of Jesus Christ by joining with global and local partners to work for justice, reconciliation and peace.
