Our Mission Statement

The faith community of the Diamond Bar United Church of Christ is committed to Jesus’ gospel

message of inclusion, justice, and peace. We are a diverse group who worships, sings, eats,

serves our neighbor, cares for the vulnerable and welcomes all to explore their relationship with


Open and Affirming

We are an Open and Affirming ("ONA") congregation joyfully welcoming and accepting people

of every sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, economic status, gender, age, or personal ability.

We are here to bear witness to the inclusiveness of God’s grace and love.

The United Church of Christ is a non-hierarchical, progressive denomination committed to the

unity of the Church. With a rich history tying faith to social justice, the UCC continues to challenge its

members to explore cutting edge theology and service to the world. 

We understand that faith is a matter of mind as well as heart and that taking the Bible seriously

means it cannot always be taken literally. We know that God’s love embraces all persons equally,

no matter their gender, race, or sexual identity. We believe that the social expression of love is

justice and that God calls us to be peacemakers and to cherish the natural world. We wish for an

open and embracing community of faith to nurture our spirit and raise our children.
