The Mission Statement

     Believing that we are loved by God, redeemed by Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and guided by the Scriptures; we, the people of First United Church of Christ, are called to grow in Christ and to minister in His Name.

Our Mission is:
     For the past 184 years the people of the First United Church of Christ and our predecessor denominations have witnessed the love and grace of God in the Sugarcreek area. As Christians, we covenant to love God with all our heart, our soul, and our strength and mind; and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We confess that Jesus Christ is our only Savior and the sole Head of the Church. We affirm God's truth as revealed in the scriptures and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to understand and apply it in our lives. We accept two sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, and we welcome all who desire to join us in serving God and our world.
