Inclusive Covenant

for St. John’s United Church of Christ

St. John’s United Church of Christ is called to follow Jesus’ path of love, justice and inclusion.  Therefore, we declare ourselves an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. Abiding by our denomination’s core belief, we welcome all, no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey; you are welcome here at St. John’s UCC.

We welcome all – regardless of race, age, ethnicity, marital status, family structure, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, education, physical or mental ability, addictions, socio-economic status, or faith background.  We are committed to being a safe place for all.

We believe that all people are created in God’s image and thus are loved and blessed equally by God. The gospel says to love God “with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27).

We are committed to continue the work of being an inclusive congregation because “God is still speaking.”  By God’s grace we will travel this path in Christian faith and Christian community.
