Bethel UCC Welcoming Statement

Bethel United Church of Christ recognizes that God’s commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself” contains no exceptions. This fact was often displayed during Jesus’ ministry by his association with people from a variety of backgrounds, faith traditions and social classes. Following Christ’s example, we commit to model actions and expressions of openness and understanding; offering justice, healing, and wholeness of life for all people.

No matter who – no matter what – no matter where we are on life’s journey – notwithstanding gender, race, age, physical or mental capabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, economic status, education, marital status, faith background, nationality, or life experiences – we all belong to God and to one worldwide community of faith. The members of Bethel United Church of Christ joyfully and unequivocally welcome all to share in the life and leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities and blessings of participation in our congregation.

Come experience our extravagant welcome and help us build a brighter future for all through the healing and unconditional nature of God’s love.
