Welcome to the First United Church of Arvada, an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, where “God is still speaking,” We are glad and grateful that you are with us, and hope your experience here enriches your life.

We are a caring community of people doing our best to follow Christ’s command, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” We are also a diverse family that actively cares for one another. Wherever you are on your faith journey, feel welcome at First United where we are DIVERSE IN THOUGHT AND UNITED IN SPIRIT.

Who We Are

Matthew 25:40We see ourselves as a faith community in which we can discover the resources for our work in this world: striving for justice and peace among all people, bringing hope to those Jesus called the least of these, feeding the hungry, advocating for the children of this world, and preserving the environment.

We hold no rigid doctrine but believe in the triune God: Creator, Christ and Holy Spirit. We seek, in worship, to celebrate our grand diversity and the many faith traditions that have brought us to this time.We believe that we are called to be a prophetic church in the tradition of the prophets and apostles, where God calls us to speak truth to power.

We trust and respect each person’s spiritual journey in life. We welcome all persons without regard to age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, physical or mental ability, national origin or scriptural interpretations.
