An Open and Affirming Congregation
of the United Church of Christ
Welcome to Faith!
a message from Pastor Gene McAfee
On behalf of the congregation of Faith United Church of Christ, allow me to extend a Warm Web Welcome to you and to invite you not only to explore our website, but to let us greet you in person someday at our church in Richmond Heights, Ohio, an eastern suburb of Cleveland.
Faith is a progressive evangelical congregation of the United Church of Christ, and we are committed to sharing the Good News of God's love for the world shown to us and experienced by us in the living Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ.
We believe, with the apostle Paul, that the Good News of Jesus Christ is truly
the ministry of reconciliation(2 Corinthians 5:18), and all of us here seek to proclaim that reconciling message in thought, word, and deed.
Whether you're a seeker or a veteran, a newcomer or an old-timer, filled with confidence or full of questions, we invite you to join us in our pilgrimage of faith.
Our table is open to all who desire the spiritual nourishment of God's love, and our inclusive worship, education, fellowship, and service provide abundant opportunities for the living out of our individual and corporate faith.
The ministers of this church are its members -- I am simply the pastor -- and in their name let me say again how pleased we are to welcome you to Faith!
Wishing you God's peace and grace,
Gene McAfee, Pastor
