Faith Statements

Four statements are recognized as doctrine, subordinate to the primacy of scripture:


   A Song of Faith (2006)

A song of Faith seeks to provide a verbal picture of what the United Church understands its faith to be in our early 21st-century context.


   A New Creed (1968)

A New Creed is a brief and well-loved affirmation of faith used widely in our worship.


   A Statement of Faith (1940)

United Church doctrine was amplified in the Statement of Faith in 1940.


   Twenty Articles of Doctrine (1925)

United Church doctrine was first formulated as the 20 articles in the 1925 Basis of Union -- the church's "constitution".
