We are an "Open and Affirming" Church
The following was adopted by acclamation by the congregation on January 24, 2009 as an outward statement of our every-day practices and strong beliefs:
"We, the United Church of Christ - Congregational of Plainfield, New Jersey, declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming congregation.
In the spirit of Paul's words in Galatians, we recognize, celebrate and give thanks for the diversity in which God has created us, each in the image and likeness of God and loved and embraced by God.
We acknowledge that discrimination of any kind is incompatible with Christ's example and gospel of unconditional love.
We invite and welcome into community persons of every gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, mental and physical ability, age, race, nationality, socioeconomic status, faith background, marital standing and family structure.
Therefore, no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome in this United Church of Christ."
