Our Vision & Mission

First Congregational Church, UCC - Red Oak's Vision Statement

Our conviction to our values calls us to bold actions of ministry and mission which embrace inclusiveness, love, service, social justice, compassion and affirmation of individual diversities. These values are based in scripture that we take seriously, not literally, and in historical context of how scripture speaks to us today. Through our words and deeds, we will be an example of God’s inclusive love so that all God’s children are supported physically and spiritually.


Mission Statement

We are a warm, welcoming church, where people feel valued and affirmed, especially those who have been alienated from church in the past. We do this by aligning our words and deeds and being consciously inclusive of diversity.

We will support each other and our community spiritually, physically and emotionally by providing a structure for spiritual growth. Preaching and teaching the Gospel, we encourage people to learn, ask questions and reflect on their own beliefs in light of the scripture, reason and human experience.

Using our own resources and working with community partners, we provide hands-on mission in order to live the Gospel in today’s world.
