Our Interfaith Community
There are so many religions. So, who’s right?
We do not judge sincere followers of paths other than Christianity as “wrong.” We believe all people are following the Christ – the divine nature – by whatever name they identify divinity. Here at UCC, we rejoice in interfaith activities, believing that there is only one God, shining through each and all and realized according to individual understanding, and we are all growing. In Unity, we are not in competition with anybody. We are all in this life together, in the Presence of God – the Good omnipotent – in which we live and move and have our being, whether we realize it or not.Below are some of our partners in the local interfaith community.
