The First Church in Belfast
United Church of Christ
An Open and Affirming Congregation
Where God is Still Speaking.
Located in Belfast, Maine
We, the people of the First Church in Belfast, United Church of Christ, declare ourselves to be a gathered
body of Christians, ever open to the voice of the Still Speaking God. In the spirit of those who worshipped
here before us for over 200 years, we strive to witness God's love and Jesus' example in the wider community.
To that end, we engage and support all people, whoever they may be and wherever they are on their spiritual
journey, in worship, fellowship and service.
We intentionally and joyfully welcome people of every race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender
identity and expression, marital status, physical and mental ability, socio-economic situation and faith
background into the full life, ministry, sacraments and leadership of this church. We celebrate and support
family in all its diverse forms and recognize and bless all loving and committed relationships. Together, we
will strive, in the words of the prophet Micah, "to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God.
