From our bylaws as a Nevada Corporation since 1931:

ARTICLE IV. FAITH AND COVENANT

A. Faith. This church acknowledges as its sole head, Jesus Christ. It acknowledges as brothers and sisters in Christ all who share this confession. It looks to the Word of God in the scriptures and to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to enlighten its creative and redemptive work in the world. It claims as its own the faith of the historic Church expressed in the ancient creeds and reclaimed in the insights of the Protestant Reformers and in the Statement of Faith of the United Church of Christ. It affirms the responsibility of the Church in each generation to make this faith its own. This church recognizes two Sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion (Lord’s Supper).

No creed is held to be binding upon individual members. Each member shall have the undisturbed right to follow the Word of God according to the dictates of his own or her own conscience under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.

B. Covenant. We covenant with one another to seek and respond to the Word and the will of God. We propose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church to witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshiping God and striving for truth, justice, and peace. As did our fathers and mothers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us. We pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God, and we look with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life.
