What We Believe

  • We believe that God so loved the world, that He gave the only begotten Son, that whoever believes shall not perish but have eternal life. Therefore we are called to love one another, all people, in the same way that God first loved us and we are called to proclaim the Good News of God’s saving grace.
  • We believe that through the cross, Jesus provides for us the gift of salvation and eternal life. We also believe that during His life on earth, He spoke less about how we ought to believe, and more about how we ought to live. Therefore, we are called to live our lives, and our faith, following the teachings of Christ. Loving, forgiving, and serving one another in the same way, and with the same generosity with which God loved, forgave and served us.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit was, and is always with us, offering us strength to live our faith. and trusting in God, even when we are overwhelmed with doubts and fears. Therefore, we are called to stand with, comfort, and encourage one another in our lives and in our struggles of faith as together we strive to serve God.
  • We believe that all people are created in the image and after the likeness of God! Therefore, ALL people are welcome into the full life and fellowship of Peace Church!  We offer our welcome:

To all who are weary and need rest; to all who are lonely and need fellowship; to all who mourn and need comfort; to all who pray and to all who do not but ought; to all who sin and need a Savior; and to whomsoever will come – this church opens wide the door and says in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, WELCOME!

Our Beliefs

As members of Peace United Church of Christ we believe:

  • In Jesus Christ as the Son of God and our Savior,
  • That He died upon the cross so that we might have forgiveness of sin and life everlasting,
  • That as the Son of God, Jesus Christ is the head of the church and of our lives,
  • That the Bible is the word of God and we look to the word of God as our guide for life and faith,
  • We acknowledge as brothers and sisters in faith all who share this confession.

Application of our Beliefs

As members of Christ’s Church we:

  • Look for the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit to continue its creative and redemptive work in the world; and,
  • Affirm that it is the responsibility of every Christian, in every generation, to make this faith their own in sincerity of thought and honesty of worship.

“Following the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, we believe that we are called to carry out His mission in the world today. Wherever there are people without the Gospel, wherever there are people in need, wherever there is injustice, strife, hatred and greed – there the Church of Christ is bound by its Lord to bear witness, to serve, to help, to reconcile, to rebuild. We belong to Christ and must follow where he leads.”
