Click for a listing of weekly sermons      

The First church is a fellowship of concerned people, committed to searching for truth and the way of love without being encumbered by dogmatism, pietism, religious or social exclusiveness.

The First Church affirms the responsibility of every generation to make the historic faith its own reality of worship, in honesty of thought and expression, and in purity of heart before God.

The church seeks to serve the entire local community by fulfilling people's basic and religious needs. We welcome all people as the children of God. The church accepts as members all those who are searching for truth; avoiding narrow dogmatism, it will endeavor, with affirmations that are positive, to provide a religious home of wide spectrum of belief. The statement of faith of this church shall be the statement of faith of the United Church of Christ, not as a test of faith but as a guide to what the church generally believes - subject to individual interpretation.
