WHO WE ARE

We believe that church is not a building, but is made up of the people of the church

United Church of Christ


We are a congregation of the United Church of Christ, one of the most progressive denominations in the world. The UCC  is a mainline Protestant Christian denomination based in the United States, with historical confessional roots in the Congregational, Reformed, and Lutheran traditions; with approximately 4,882 churches and 824,866 members.

Now, more than ever, WE are the church!

"We are the New Church -  the Chiesa Nuova, who gather and are gathered 

as an intentional Christian community seeking to follow  in the Way of Jesus."




CALLING STATEMENT

GUIDING SCRIPTURE


Seek first the realm of God and God's righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 

Matthew 6.33


You might notice that a lot of our evening events - special worship services, book studies, fellowship opportunities - are scheduled to begin at 6:33pm. That's because we claim Matthew 6.33 as our Guiding Scripture.

OPEN AND AFFIRMING STATEMENT

We are a community of faith witnessing to God’s love and grace for persons of every race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, physical or mental ability, political stance and theological perspective. As agents of reconciliation and wholeness, we pledge to stand against all forms of discrimination and to embrace all who are disenfranchised from church and community. Together in our diversity and empowered and guided by the Holy Spirit, we are committed to "do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God" (Micah 6:8)

Jeus said to love one another. There are NO exceptions.


New Church is a proud member of the Open and Affirming Coalition (ONA) of the United Church of Christ.


WHAT WE BELIEVE


We are a progressive, open and affirming faith community. We believe that all people have worth, so you don’t have to be a member of this church or any church, or even know what you believe, to participate in the life of this community. 

OUR VALUES

As a community passionate about following in the way of Jesus, we exist to serve others, particularly those most marginalized by society.  Our hope is that you will feel extravagantly welcome here.

OUR HISTORY

New Church grew out of a small group of disciples who had been gathering together for fellowship and study.
