Our mission, through the grace of God, is to open whatever is closed -
the church to all people,
hearts to God's love,
minds to God's story,
and lives to be instruments of change.

What We Believe ~ empowers us to open whatever is closed. First Community Church is a congregation formed by many theological traditions. The same is true of the United Church of Christ. FCC and the UCC are bodies where intellectual freedom and the great liberating principles of the Church are cherished. There is no one creed that defines us, but there are affirmations of faith that hold us togeth

It’s hard to be a person with a uterus in Texas right now. Despite what some people want women to think about our bodies, there is nothing wrong with us. We are sacred; we are whole; we are image-bearers.

From her book, "Parable of the Sower"

"Create no images of God.
Accept the images
that God has provided.
They are everywhere,
in everything.
God is Change—
Seed to tree,
tree to forest;
Rain to river,
river to sea;
Grubs to bees,
bees to swarm.
From one, many;
from many, one;
Forever uniting, growing, dissolving—
forever Changing.
The universe
is God’s self-portrait."

[Image description: A light brown photo with the faint image of a forest with a few leaves on the trees in the background. These words sit on top - "
God is Change—
Seed to tree,
tree to forest;
Rain to river,
river to sea;
Grubs to bees,
bees to swarm.
From one, many;
from many, one;
Forever uniting, growing, dissolving—
forever Changing.
The universe
is God’s self-portrait.
