Mission & Identity

"This is what ALL churches should be like!"

"The preaching connects God to my life in ways I've never experienced before."

"I was amazed how important children, the elderly, and people of all ages are here."

"This congregation feeds food-insecure kids, loans medical equipment to people who need it, and is so warm and friendly: they follow the Jesus I love!"

These are just some of the ways that new worshipers and relatively new members of our congregation have described us.

We, the First United Church of Christ of Milford, Connecticut, are an historic and inclusive community of God's children, moved by the spirit, who hear and believe the Word of God, and minister in the name of Jesus Christ.

We seek to discern God's will and strive to carry out the teachings of Jesus Christ in faith, worship and service.

Our congregation consists of people from different backgrounds and different religious traditions united as a community dedicated to the proclamation and sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As part of the United Church of Christ, we affirm the extravagant welcome and radical hospitality of our denomination with an affirmation that:

"No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here."      

Whether you are searching for a church home, or simply seeking to learn about the Christian faith, we welcome you to First Church!
