What We Believe
We are servants of God, celebrating God’s Spirit of love and forgiveness as taught by Jesus Christ. Invigorated and energized by that Spirit, we teach, live and share the Christian faith. We dedicate ourselves to making faith a priority in our lives.
By God’s grace, we will be an attentive church. We commit ourselves anew to listen for God’s word in Holy Scripture, in our rich heritage, in faithful witness, and in the fresh winds of the Holy Spirit so that we might discover God’s way for us.
By God’s grace, we will be a welcoming church. We commit ourselves to be a church for all people. Through Christ we celebrate, affirm, and embrace the rich diversity of God’s good creation.
By God’s grace, we will be a responsive church. We commit ourselves to be a church of justice, mercy and peace, so lives may be renewed, spirits revived, and communities transformed.
By God’s grace, we will be a supportive church. We commit ourselves to strengthen the body of Christ through renewed resolve and mutual support for our common ministries.
We, the First Congregational Church of Granby, Connecticut, declare that we are an Open and Affirming congregation, a safe place for all of God's children. We welcome all individuals and families who desire to share in our community of faith. We affirm the dignity and worth of every person, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, race, mental or physical ability or sexual orientation. We offer all sacraments and rites to all who enter our circle of faith. We celebrate the gifts that each person brings to First Congregational Church and invite them to share in all areas of its service, leadership, activities, responsibilities and privileges.
We strive to function faithfully in response to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Christ's principles of love and justice, grace and mercy. We believe there are no outsiders in a community that is observant of God's will. Led by Jesus' spirit, through our words and actions, we will work toward breaking down the barriers of prejudice.
As an Open and Affirming church, we join our sisters and brothers in the United Church of Christ and all other persons who are committed to the struggle for justice, love and inclusiveness, with the example of Jesus Christ as our guide.
"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another." (John 13:34)
