What Matters to You? Matters to Us provides essential reflections on core themes of the United Church of Christ, while inviting new and long-standing members alike to consider their own identity and faith formation.
Six central themes invite engagement:
1) We Are People of God's Extravagant Welcome
2) We Belong to Christ
3) We Are a People of Covenant, a United and Uniting Church
4) We Are One at Baptism and the Table
5) We Thank God by Working for a Just and Loving World
6) We Listen for the Still-speaking God
A seventh chapter offers historical examples. The United Church of Christ's Statement of Faith and the Preamble to the Constitution are also included.
