St. Thomas is a congregation of

the United Church of Christ.

Locally, we’re connected with

the Penn Central Conference.


The United Church of Christ affirms

the Bible as the authoritative witness to the Word of God,

the creeds of the ecumenical councils,

and the confessions of the Reformation.

The UCC’s statement of faith can be expressed as a doxology, like this:

 

We believe in you, O God, Eternal Spirit, God of our Savior Jesus Christ and our God, and to your deeds we testify:

 

You call the worlds into being, create persons in your own image, and set before each one the ways of life and death.

 

You seek in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.

 

You judge people and nations by your righteous will declared through prophets and apostles.

 

In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Savior, you have come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the world to yourself.

 

You bestow upon us your Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.

 

You call us into your church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be your servants in the service of others, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Christ's baptism and eat at his table, to join him in his passion and victory.

 

You promise to all who trust you forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, your presence in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in your realm which has no end.

 

Blessing and honor, glory and power be unto you.

 

Amen.

SNAPSHOT

St. Thomas has been part of the community for more than 250 years. So while this is a church with history, St. Thomas is also interested in what's happening now--and in what's on the horizon.
