Our Mission

University Church of Christ is an independent Christian Church/Church of Christ.  We claim no doctrines or creeds other than those found in the Bible, the inspired Word of God.  We strive to be a reflection of the New Testament church in both our worship and our witness.  Our mission is to promote life in Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, for the glory of our heavenly Father and God.
