Our Statement of Purpose
The purpose of the First Congregational United Church of Christ of Algona, Iowa is to be an alive and growing family of faith in God, the God whom we know through Jesus Christ and who has given us in Jesus the image of what human life is meant to be.
We strive to mature in faith by encouraging the free exploration of our Christian beliefs so that our faith will be more relevant to our individual lives and to the society in which we live.
With friendship and understanding, we find strength in the diversity of the interests and backgrounds of our members. We welcome all persons who would seek with us answers to lifeís ultimate questions.
We take love to be the heart of the Gospel of Jesus and the unifying force in our church. Therefore, we celebrate Godís love and blessings in worship. We nurture one another through acceptance, caring, and sharing. We reach out beyond ourselves to the needs of others, to promote justice and to witness to Godís love.
In all that we do, we seek to continue our heritage of being a pioneering people in a changing world.
