What We Believe
1. The Covenant of Webster Congregational Christian Church of the United Church of Christ
Jesus tells us, love God with all your heart and soul and mind and your neighbor as yourself. Inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus, we gather as a community where questioning, listening, and learning lead us toward faith and understanding.
We promise to support each other's relationship with God and encourage each individual's calling. We strive to be compassionate and minister to those in need. We work to right injustice and advance peace. We seek to be good stewards of God's gifts. We endeavor to live our faith both inside and outside our doors.
All are invited to participate in the life of the church as we celebrate God's grace through prayer and worship, music, education, service, and fellowship.

2. Webster United Congregational Christian Church of the United Church of Christ Statement of Faith
We believe in you, O God, Eternal Spirit, God of our Savior Jesus Christ
and our God, and to your deeds we testify.
You call the worlds into being,
create persons in your own image
and set before each one the ways of life and death.
You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.
You judge people and nations by your righteous will
declared through prophets and apostles.
In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior
you have come to us
and shared our common lot,
conquering sin and death
and reconciling the world to yourself.
You bestow upon us your Holy Spirit,
creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ,
binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues and races.
You call us into your church
to accept the cost and joy of discipleship,
to be your servants in the service of others,
to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the posers of evil,
to join him in his passion and victory.
You promise to all who trust you
forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace,
courage in the struggle for justice and peace,
your presence in trial and rejoicing,
and eternal life in your realm which has no end.
Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you. Amen.
Statement of Faith, revised 1981 (in the form of a doxology),
