The congregation of UBC values these things:
Growth as individual believers with the privilege and responsibility of interpreting Scripture under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and according to his or her own conscience, and of entering the presence of God with no intermediary other than Jesus Christ.
Grace as manifested by the involvement of each member in the church's ministry of reconciling the world to God, sharing the love of Christ through both the words of evangelism and the deeds of personal and corporate ministry.
Knowledge of the truth of God as developed by committed involvement in individual and corporate study of Scripture, prayer, and worship, in order to grow into mature followers of Jesus Christ.
As a Baptist congregation, we affirm these historic Baptist principles:
We believe in the priesthood of all believers. We affirm the freedom and responsibility of every person to relate directly to God without the imposition of creed or the control of clergy or government.
We believe in the authority of Scripture. We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the church. We affirm the freedom and right of every Christian to interpret and apply scripture under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the autonomy of every local church. We believe Baptist churches are free, under the Lordship of Christ, to determine their membership and leadership, to order their worship and work, to ordain whomever they perceive as gifted for ministry, and to participate as they deem appropriate in the larger Body of Christ.
We believe in freedom of religion, freedom for religion, and freedom from religion. We support the separation of church and state.
