Look into the hearts of the people of the United Church of Christ.
You will see that across our church, the people in our pews hold diverse beliefs and come to their faith from many perspectives. That's something we're proud of in the United Church of Christ.
Being a part of the United Church of Christ means unity despite differences and extravagant love. Dreams of inclusivity have become a reality in many churches were people aren't judged based on how they look, what they believe, or who they love.

Bless you all for your participation in this joyful ministry of generosity.
