Kansas City United Church of Christ
No Matter Who You Are or Where You are on Life’s Journey…
...You Are Welcome Here!
Jesus didn't turn people away and neither do we.
Whatever your beliefs, you are welcome here.
At KCUCC, our worship is traditional but our thinking is not. We value diversity of belief and perspective. Our faith community contains people who identify as Christian, those who seek spiritual truth but resist traditional religious labels, agnostics who are drawn to the teachings of Jesus and more. We believe church is about community and dialogue rather than conformity. We believe in loving God with our hearts and also our minds. We believe God is still speaking to each of us and each person has the freedom to experience God in their own way.
All people are welcome here, including LGBTQIA people.
KCUCC is an Open and Affirming (ONA) congregation. We open our doors to everyone whatever their gender, economic class, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity or difference in ability.
Because of Christianity’s historic and ongoing oppression of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual and asexual people (LGBTQIA), we decided over 20 years ago to publicly declare our support for LGBTQIA rights. We are “open” to LGBTQIA people and we “affirm” them as made by God. Today our church is made up of roughly half heterosexual people and half LGBTQIA people.
People who care about peace and justice are welcome here.
KCUCC is a Peace With Justice Congregation. We believe peace and justice are at the heart of Jesus’ teachings. We promote interdependence through economic, political and social justice. We seek to love life in all its diversity. We work for a sustainable earth and try to answer resentment and anger with the equitable distribution of the earth’s resources.
