A Range of Spiritual Expression
Our Ministers declare that they are in essential agreement with the doctrine as laid out in the Basis of Union as a prerequisite of Ordination or Commissioning. However, we do not ask our members to confess any particular doctrine other than to declare their faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.This means that the United Church is quite likely the freest thinking religious body on the planet! The framework of orthodox reform theology is there to guide and inform, while offering members and affiliates to come to know God in an amazingly diverse range of experience and expression. Whether you come from a deep historic faith based on the ancient creeds or are exploring spirituality as an extension of your own soul, the United Church is the vehicle to carry you through life in respectful community.
