CFC Mission Statement

"Empowering members for ministries in workplace, home, church and community."

The Colchester Federated Church is a caring Christian congregation made up of individuals and families who are gathered together to grow in life and faith through worship, learning, and a variety of social and spiritual programs.

The church encourages individuals to recognize and value their own self-worth. It nurtures them as they explore their beliefs and commitments, and it challenges them to expand each other’s horizons of mind, heart, and spirit.

As part of the wider community, the church recognizes the diversity of needs and issues within our society and world. Bound together by care and faith the church reaches out as our agent of change, creating a healthy, vibrant community and world.

CFC Welcoming, Open and Affirming Statement

We the members of the Colchester Federated Church believe that all people are created in God’s image and thus are loved and blessed equally by God. We take seriously Jesus’ teaching: “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” [Mark 12:30-31]

We declare ourselves a Welcoming, Open and Affirming faith community. We invite all who seek to follow Jesus into the full life of our church, ministry, leadership, worship, sacraments, rites, and fellowship: all persons of every gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression; as well as all ages, races, nationalities, mental and physical ability, family structure, and social and economic status.

Jesus teaches us to welcome all into God’s covenantal community. Celebrating the diversity in which God has created us, we pray that together we may, by this declaration, follow the example of God’s love of all persons, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
