VISION & MISSION

As a covenant community formed by the triune God, we are called to share together in the ongoing life and ministry of Jesus Christ, proclaiming and demonstrating the Gospel publicly in word and deed in the power of the Holy Spirit.

At First UP Church we are truly welcoming which means full inclusion in all aspects of church life regardless of race, gender identity, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation or marital status.  This includes membership, ordination, opportunities for service, and weddings.

We believe in the great commission with Jesus calling us to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."

We are a community that believes and works to be in community. Gathered in worship and sent to serve in the world with emphasis in our local communities sharing our love of God and neighbor.
