Our Faith

We are listening to God, who is still speaking today.

At Pilgrim Church, we don’t claim to have all the answers. Instead, we covenant with each other to look and listen to the way the story of God’s people continues today in the stories we hear in the West Side of Cincinnati. Spend time with us and you will see what we believe!

We try our best to welcome and include everyone. This is because we believe in one God who created us all in the splendor of human diversity and welcomes us to a sumptuous banquet.

We offer the peace of Christ with others, we share around the communion table and baptize adults and children in the name of the Trinity, we pray in the name of Jesus, we know the cost and joy of discipleship. Jesus is not just our teacher, but our brother, friend, and savior as well.

We experience the power of God’s Spirit in our relationships with one another and in joining together with each other to extend love and welcome to all people. The Holy Spirit is Truth, blowing everywhere and filling all things, a storehouse of blessings and the giver of life who abides with us and transforms us.

We know the stories of the Bible are still alive and are playing out in our personal experiences each day, and that God is present to all the joy and messiness of human life.

We welcome you with all your questions, all your faith and doubt, all your joys and sorrows, as God welcomes us all.

We are part of a larger family of faith called the United Church of Christ, a denomination founded on the principles of unity and inclusion. Learn more about them by clicking here
