Who We Are

At University Christian Church, we believe that God is calling us to be:

  • Christ-centered and Spirit-led
  • Multi-racial and ecumenical
  • Prayerful and compassionate

Our congregation is made up of young and old, liberal and conservative, and a rich mixture of colors and cultures. We prize our inclusiveness and diversity as a reflection of God's will for the church and the world. We have not all "arrived" in our faith, so we actively welcome other "seekers" who are trying to find a more intimate relationship with God and a clearer sense of God's will.

Our church building is located at the corner of Adelphi and Belcrest Roads in Hyattsville, Maryland, not far from Northwestern High School. Our members live in Maryland and the District of Columbia.

University Christian Church is a member congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). As a legacy of our beginning 150 years ago, we do not require belief in any creed, but seek to unite all who believe in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God.

Our Mission

Our congregation believes we are called by God to reflect and celebrate the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.

All people are invited to share in the life and leadership of our church, and to participate in the joys and challenges of Christian Discipleship. Our diversity is treasured. Individual differences are embraced, such as age, race, economic status, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, and physical and mental ability.

We feel empowered by the Holy Spirit to change, grow, and learn, as we listen carefully to what God is calling us to do and be. Especially, we hear God's call to reach out in love and service to others, promoting justice and compassion for all God's children and all God's creation.
