OUR Mission

We exist to KNOW Jesus, DECLARE Jesus, and make DISCIPLES in Jesus, all for the Glory of Jesus.


The most important person we could ever know is Jesus Christ. Jesus is Eternal God who became a man in order to rescue man from sin and death. Jesus entered human history as the God man - he lived the perfect life we could not live in our place, and died the death we deserved to die as our substitute. Jesus then rose from the grave to newness of life conquering Satan, sin, the curse, death, and satisfying the wrath of God. It is through believing, loving, and knowing Jesus that our sin is forgiven, we are connected back to God, and receive newness of life.
The primary way we know Jesus, is through his word. The Word of God reveals to us the person of God - Jesus Christ, his accomplished work, and the grace he generously gives. At Union Church, God’s word is our primary authority, and we are committed to the clear, thorough teaching of scripture and the centrality of the Gospel in doctrine, life, and ministry.


The salvation Jesus gives is not intended to stop with us, but instead must be declared to all. The gospel makes us a people for others. God has taken the church as a people for himself, a people to display his glory to and through. The gospel of grace frees and empowers us not to live self-centered lives, but rather other-centered lives.
At Union Church, It is our deep desire that people in our city and beyond would come to know Jesus and the Gospel, the only way to receive forgiveness from sin and to be reconciled to God (Jn. 14:6). We declare the work of Jesus in the Gospel every week, that non-Christians might hear and believe, and that believers might be reminded and refreshed in the work of their savior. But this declaration must also move outside the walls of the church - this is not the job of one or a few pastors or leaders, but instead, it is the responsibility and privilege of the whole body of Christ. As a church, we seek to declare what we believe, but also why we believe it, in a way that invites questions, engages in dialogue, and builds friendships.


Our journey as Christians does not end when we receive the gift of salvation, but instead, it just begins. Being a disciple is not merely a title, but a lifelong process - discipleship is simply helping one another grow in Christ. At Union Church, it is our desire to make disciples who are growing in joyful, loving devotion to Jesus and his church, and who advance the mission of God by making disciples themselves (Matt. 28:19; 2 Tim. 2:2)


We believe that in any faithful, biblically informed Christian church, there will be much carryover in identity and purpose—And yet each local church also has distinctives that make up that local body’s DNA. Here are a few of ours

God’s Sovereignty in Saving Sinners

We wholeheartedly embrace and rejoice in the sovereignty of God in and over all things, particularly in his work of salvation in the life of man and the security of that salvation by the power of the Holy Spirit. (John ‪1:12-13, ‪6:44, ‪10:28; Acts ‪16:14; Romans ‪9:14-18; 2 Cor. 5:5; Eph. ‪1:13, 2:4-10, ‪4:30)

Complementarian Relationships

We are deeply committed to men as responsible servant-leaders in the home and church and the fundamental spiritual and moral equality of male and female. We are devoted to the training and equipping single men and women to faithfully carry out their roles in future marriage, family, and church leadership.  (Gen. 1:26-27, ‪2:18; Acts 18:24-26; 1 Cor. 11:2-16; Gal. ‪3:28; Eph. 5:22-33; Col. ‪3:18-19, 1 Tim. ‪2:11-15, 3:1-7; Titus 2:3-5; 1 Pt. 3:1-7)

Spirit Filled Living

We recognize and rest in the necessity of the empowerment of the Holy Spirit for all of life and ministry. We are fully committed to pursuing the fullness of God in our personal holiness and in the use of his spiritual gifts in the life of the church.  (Lev. 11:44-45; John ‪14:15-17; Gal. 5:22-24; Rom. 5:5; Eph. 1:3-4; 1 Pt. ‪1:13-16; Col. ‪3:12-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 12-14; Jude 1:17-25)

Missional Church

We embrace a missionary understanding of the local church and its role as the primary means by which God displays himself in the world to reach the world.  (Matt. ‪16:18, 28:18-20; Rom. 1:8; Eph. ‪3:10; 1 Pt. 2:9-12)
