A movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.
"God calls University Christian Church to witness to our faith in Jesus Christ. Following his example, we will reach out to and accept all people, offering multiple opportunities for worship, fellowship, spiritual growth, and service to others. We accept the call to live in community and demonstrate God's inclusive love for everyone in all we say and do."
-from our Statement of Calling
University Christian Church, a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregation, has been a fixture in Hillcrest for over 100 years. As the population has grown and their needs have shifted, our church has kept pace, continually growing as a congregation while bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to all.
We are an Open & Affirming congregation living within the challenges that come from a highly diverse neighborhood and church. In addition, the gospel of grace and radical inclusion as evidenced in scripture is regularly celebrated and proclaimed from both pulpit and Communion table.
But along with the challenges comes the richness of a faith community falling fully into the loving arms of God! You’ll find that University Christian Church is a centered place of grace that brings fresh energy and new enthusiasm for the building up of the body of Christ. All can grow in faith and fellowship!
