Welcome To Our home in Greene, New York
Our congregation is part of the United Church of Christ. This denomination was
formed on June 25, 1957, when the Evangelical and Reformed Church united with
the Congregational Christian Churches. These denominations resulted from an
earlier union: the Congregational Church uniting with the Christian Churches in
1931, and the union between the Evangelical Church and the Reformed Church in
1934, both of which were of German and Swiss background.
The United Church of Christ is a united and uniting church. It is a church of
Christ, working to carry out His mission. It is a free church, where no higher
body dictates on local church decisions. And it is a church of the people
gathered for worship, work and witness.
The two basic requirements for membership are: faith in Jesus Christ as Lord
and Savior, and a willingness to serve God and the world in a covenant of
fellowship with other members. And our church doctrine is embodied in our...
"Statement of Faith"
We believe in you, O God, the 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
You judge people and nations by your righteous will declared
through prophets and
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
to be your servants in the service to others,
to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil,
to share Christ's baptism and eat at his table,
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, his presence in trial and
rejoicing, and eternal life in his realm which has no end.
Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you.
