Who We Are

Being an inclusive church means listening to the voices of the most marginalized.  
 

Radically Inclusive

At Liberation United Church of Christ, we embrace the teaching that each person is "fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). Variations in sexual orientation, gender/gender identity, race, and ability are to be honored and celebrated as manifestations of God's creativity and will.

We seek to live out the call to liberation we see scripture. Whoever you are, and whatever marginalization you may have experienced in other faith communities, you can expect   welcome, affirmation, and inclusion here. 

 

Liberation UCC Community
 

A community of Faith

Liberation is a Christian community that meets to sing, pray, and worship God. We see church as a place for fellowship, worship, celebration, and refuge. Our basic tenants include:

  • Belief in one God, as expressed through God the Creator, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Belief in redemption, salvation, and liberation through Jesus Christ
  • Belief in the Bible as a sacred text
  • Belief in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit

 

Liberation UCC is a queer affirming church. We believe that gay, lesibian, bisexual, queer, and trans (the T is not silent here!) people are beloved children of God. 
 

Agents for Change

At Liberation UCC we feel a persistent call towards justice, liberation, and positive change. In keeping with this call, we actively support movements engaged in anti-racist work, queer and trans liberation, gender equality, as well as other liberation focused movements. 

 
Liberation UCC is a progressive charismatic church. 

 

CHARISMATIC

Liberation is a Charismatic congregation. We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which manifests itself in our worship style. Congregants shout, sing, dance, raise hands, and otherwise move as the Spirit directs during worship.
