Our Beliefs

The United Church Creed

Summer congregation at worship at UCiM

At UCiM, to know what we do is to know what we believe.

We are not a dogmatic church and embrace a range of theologies and spiritual experience. 

We do, however, have a sense of calling, something described for us in the United Church Creed. 

We are called to be the Church:

to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus,
crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
