To Celebrate God’s Presence in:


To Glorify God and Make Disciples in the Name of Jesus Christ as the Spirit leads and Guides


We value friendship with church family members as we grow in faith, share in the life and work of our church and live following the teachings of Jesus Christ

What We Believe

As a congregation of the United Church of Canada we adhere to Statements of Faith as part of our history but members are not required to adhere to any particular creed or formulation of doctrine. The Bible serves as the primacy of our faith and understanding of God.

Four Statements of Faith- 20 Articles of Doctrine 1925; Statement of Faith 1940; A New Creed 1968 and A Song of Faith 2006 are doctrinal teachings of who God is and what we believe have guided the United Church of Canada from its Inception in June 1925 until present day.
