Ravenshoe United Church consists of an active, caring, worshipping congregation of Christians who continue, with the grace of God, to grow spiritually, and use our various gifts to help each other within our church family, the community, the world now and for future generations.
We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
“To be a reflection of Jesus’ love”
The United Church of Canada came into being in 1925 as a result of a union of the Congregationalists, the Methodists, two-thirds of the Presbyterians, and a group of Union Churches (primarily in western Canada). These founding groups joined on the basis of an agreement worked out over a decade earlier by a Joint Union Committee representing the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian churches. That agreement, known as the Basis of Union, outlined in a general way the shape this new United Church would take.
