University Church of Christ is part of the history of Abilene, and our story goes back more than a century. Our name comes from our proximity to the campus of Abilene Christian University just across the street, and we have many strong ties with ACU. We are thankful for our heritage in Churches of Christ and our roots in the American Restoration Movement.
However, we are more than our past. Though we are proud of where we have been, we are also glad to talk about where we want to go. If you visit UCC, you will discover a group of Christians from various backgrounds who are seeking to follow Jesus faithfully in this generation. Our membership is diverse including business and professional people, young families, students, teachers, farmers, youth and senior adults.
Our church family includes different races, different first languages, different levels of education and socio-economic backgrounds. We value these many differences but most of all we value the truth that unites us is the common Lordship of Jesus Christ. We are all sinners who need his forgiveness.
Because we proclaim Jesus as Lord, we also share a sense of his mission to the world around us, both globally and right here in Abilene. People everywhere need the life-changing message of God. We believe the gospel of Christ is far too powerful to leave any of us the way it finds us. We invite you to come join us as we seek the great purposes of God for his creation.
