NEW BEGINNINGS : Building and Growing for the Next Generation


 To be the cornerstone of Progressive Theological Thought and Social Justice Engagement

To strategically build Social Justice Ministries for the Next Generation

To develop leadership for future church growth


The primary work of Unity Fellowship of Christ Church is to proclaim the “SACREDNESS OF ALL LIFE,” thus focusing on empowering those who have been oppressed and made to feel shame.  Through an emerging international network, UFCCLA works to facilitate social change and improve the life chances for those who have been rejected by society’s institutions and systems.  Although its pivotal work focuses on the urban weak and powerless, the scope of its work is inclusive and has significance for all people.



Compassion, Inclusiveness, Integrity, Service, Stewardship, Sustainability
