Our Covenant, Values, Vission & Mission
Village Church, along with our sister congregations throughout the United Church of Christ, is what we call a covenantal community. That is, we are united not by adherence to precisely the same creed, nor by shared background or credentials, but by our free and voluntary entrance into a shared covenant. Whenever a new member joins Village Church, the entire congregation reaffirms our covenant and strengthens the ties that bind us to one another and to God.
Our Church Covenant
We are banded together as a Christian Church
to maintain the worship of God,
to proclaim the gospel of Christ,
to develop in all people a consciousness of their relations and duties
to God and to each other, and
to inspire them with love for truth, passion for righteousness,
and enthusiasm for service.
To this end we pledge our loyalty to Christ and covenant with each other
to express His spirit in our individual and corporate life;
to live together as Christians and to submit ourselves to the government of this Church,
working, giving, praying for its increase, its purity, its peace,
and seeking in every way to make it a power
for the building up of the kingdom of God.
