What we Believe

The United Community Church of Morrisville retains its strong ties to both the United Church of Christ and the United Methodist denominations. At the same time, we are our own unique group of people, a congregation made up of people from many places, perspectives, and histories.

Our Mission: We are an inclusive faith community guided by the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. Through ministry, prayer, and service, we strive to serve and support the humanitarian and spiritual needs of our communities.

Our Values: We believe “God is Still Speaking” and that we are called to be people of “Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors.” We cannot be the Church that Christ calls us to be if we exclude any from our life and ministry, or if we ignore or belittle the dignity and the needs of any. All are welcome and cherished as part of the family of God and the community of all people. We offer hospitality, service, and aid without exception.

This church is a congregation of believers bound together by a covenant rather than a creed.  We encourage unity without uniformity.  We count among our membership persons who have been raised in other traditions such as Presbyterian, Baptist, Episcopal, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic.  This diversity in our backgrounds enriches our perspective.

What We Believe –
The United Methodist Church

The United Methodist Church is a global denomination that opens hearts, opens minds, and opens doors through active engagement with our world. The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as “practical divinity” has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

What We Believe –
The United Church of Christ

We acknowledge Jesus Christ as our Head, and find in the Holy Scriptures, interpreted by the Divine Spirit through reason, faith, and conscience, our guide in all matters of Christian faith, order, and discipline. This church recognizes the Bible as the guide in faith and practice, and holds that living in accordance with the life and spirit of Jesus Christ is the true test of fellowship.  Each member shall have the undisturbed right to follow the Word of God according to the dictates of one’s own conscience, under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to promote the worship of God as revealed through Jesus Christ and to promote the study of scripture.  Relying on scripture and prayer as our guides, we strive to serve humanity.
