United in our Faith Journeys

Chartered in 1947, The United Church of Los Alamos grew out of the desire of diverse Christians to continue worshiping together after World War II.  We are united with the American Baptist Church, Christian Church/Disciples of Christ, Moravian Church in North America, Presbyterian Church USA, Reformed Church in America, and United Church of Christ.  (Click on any of the denominations to go to their websites.)  For a fun exploration of our history, click here to download Jay Dee Conrad's book "The A-MAZ-ING United Church."

We are a church of all ages - from charter members to young children.  Wherever you are on your Christian journey, we look forward to traveling the road together!  All are welcome at God's House and God's Table.

                                                 WE WELCOME ALL!

Our church covenant

Thankful for God's abundant goodness, and for His great gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, our Lord, I hereby covenant to seek to know and to do His will, and to promote as far as I can, the interest of Christ's Kingdom.

Having accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour, and the Bible which gives God's progressive revelation of Himself to mankind as my Supreme Standard of Faith and Practice, and heartily believing in the province of private judgment in the interpretation of the Scriptures, I seek fellowship with all who devoutly love the Lord Jesus Christ and adopt His standard of teaching and conduct as set forth in the New Testament.

Realizing that the success of the church depends upon the consecration of its individual membership, I covenant to uphold it by my prayers, to attend its services, to contribute to its support, to labor to maintain its peace and harmony, and, as far as possible, in every way to promote its temporal and spiritual welfare.

(This covenant, which all members of The United Church of Los Alamos make and sign upon joining the church, was ratified by the congregation on Sunday, October 19, 1947.)
