An Open and Affirming Church

Our ONA Statement

We, the congregation of Church of the Redeemer United Church of Christ, believe that no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

We, seek to proclaim Christ’s selfless and unconditional love in what we teach and how we live, together in our congregation and in our community.

We welcome equally people of every race, nationality, ethnicity, economic and social status, marital standing and family structure. We welcome fully people of diverse mental and physical abilities, ages, faith backgrounds and beliefs.

We welcome wholly people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We welcome unconditionally people struggling with addictions and those who are in recovery.

We value and celebrate the rich diversity of all Gods creation. Therefore, we honor the unique expression of God’s image found in each individual and we encourage all people to develop their relationships based on the model of Christ’s acceptance and love.

Truly, all are welcome here in this United Church of Christ, and we proclaim Church of the Redeemer to be an Open and Affirming congregation.
