We believe that with great frequency the Bible teaches us that God is making all things new. Exodus is a story of homecoming, but to a new one. The gospel Jesus preached spoke of a new birth. And the church was a new expression of God’s people giving voice to his desire for a world characterized by righteousness, justice and peace.
At Somers Congregational Church we affirm the National Statement of Faith of the United Church of Christ but that doctrinal statement, above all has a human face in those who enter our doors. For above all we believe that whoever and wherever you are on life’s journey you are welcome here.
Why? Simply put, we believe our diversity enriches each of us by opening us to explore new expressions of God’s love, mercy and compassion. We are therefore, not defined by tests of faith but in our testimonies of faith and our faith stories.
Our faith, or shared beliefs and core values at Somers Congregational Church, isn’t for us a noun, or an idea to talk about. Faith is a verb that enlivens us in joyful service, warm fellowship and an extravagant welcome.
Somers Congregational Church is almost 300 years old but we haven’t forgotten that God in and through us is...making all things new.
