Belief Statements

At The United Church of Ovid, we believe…

1. That the church who loves God and loves one another will be the church that shows unconditional love in faith, family, and community.

2. That the church who prays together, worships together, studies together, serves together, and plays together, will be a church that stays together.

3. That the church who believes, studies, and lives by God’s Word, will be the church that offers opportunities to study God’s Word for all ages and levels of believers.

4. That the church who positively witnesses to others, in words and action, about their Christian faith and their Christian faith family, will be the church others will want to belong to.

5. That the church who reaches out to their community in mission will be the church who has the heart to assist “the least of these” whether near or far.

6. That the church who cooperates with other churches, whenever possible, will be the church who benefits from shared resources, shared vision, and shared calling.

7. That the church who believes that everyone has a Spiritual gift however large or small it be will be the church that fosters and encourages the use of these gifts.

8. That the church who puts more emphasis on what unites than what divides is the church that seeks to embrace and apply God’s lessons of love, forgiveness, grace and peace toward all.

9. That the church who believes that God is not done with them yet, will be the church that God can still use.
