At First Congregational Church of Houston we don’t require any creeds for membership, and we encourage members to be free thinkers. We welcome seekers, questioners, believers, and everyone in between. In addition to serving others in need, we advocate for social justice in the public square and are not afraid to let our voices be heard on moral issues.
We trace our roots to the Pilgrims and Puritans, who came to this country as religious pioneers. Like the minister of the Pilgrims, we believe “there is yet more light and truth to break forth from God’s holy word.” We are proud members of the United Church of Christ, a denomination of 5,000 congregations across the country known for its social justice advocacy.
An Open and Affirming church
Since 1998, First Congregational Church has been an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. This means we warmly welcome all people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Like our larger community, we have families of all makeups and types and offer programs for all.
