Christ is the head of our church. The United Church of Christ is our wider denomination. All Churches under the United Church of Christ umbrella are autonomous. We believe in the Holy Trinity, God the Creator, Jesus the Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, who calls the world into being, creates persons in God's image and sets before each one the ways of life. To share in Christ's baptism and eat at his table, to join him in his passion and victory. We are an Open and Affirming congregation as we seek God's direction through the Holy Spirit to walk in the ways of Jesus, to treat others with respect, and with the fullness of God's grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace. Our belief is that God bestows upon us the Holy Spirit creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races. We are an active church in the community and are proud of our regular mission/outreach projects. NWUC has a vibrant choir and our Music with a Mission concert series has raised thousands of dollars for those in need.
