What is the United Reformed Church

The United Reformed Church stands in the REFORMED tradition of Christian faith:

  • Believes in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • Finds the supreme authority for faith and conduct by the guidance of the Spirit in the Word of God in the Bible
  • Looks to be continually renewed and reformed so as to fulfill its mission of witness and service in the name of Jesus Christ
  • Practises both infant and believer’s baptism and celebrates the Lord’s Supper
  • Recognises the ministry of all God’s people:  all the members serving in the world and through the church, in particular ministers of Word and Sacrament, elders, church related community workers (CRCWs), local leaders, lay preachers and worship leaders
  • Remains committed to working for unity among the churches
