Rooted in the grace of God, the mission of the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ is to nurture local church vitality and the covenant among our churches to make God’s love and justice real.
As the largest Protestant denomination in Massachusetts (370 churches and 70,000 members), we are also the Commonwealth’s oldest denomination, with roots going back to the Puritans and Pilgrims.
The Massachusetts Conference is one of 38 regional bodies of the United Church of Christ (UCC), which has 5,100 churches and 1.1 million members.
We follow a “still speaking” God whose revelation continues in our time. We seek to listen to God’s voice as we engage with pressing challenges of today, including climate change and the call fo full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered personsin our churches and society. Our churches offer an extravagant welcome, proclaiming, “No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.” And we believe the church’s mission is to change lives – a mission we express by saying, “Never place a period where God has placed a comma.”
