Our UCCPH Beliefs and Values:

UCC Parker Hilltop founded October 1962

UCC Parker Hilltop Mission:

We know that God loves all people unconditionally

• We experience Holy Spirit joy in worship and in service to others

• We feel included and affirmed in church community and life no matter who we are or where we are on our journey of faith

• We invite questions of God, the Bible, and the Church

• We seek through Jesus Christ to do justice, love kindness, and be a part of something greater than ourselves


Progressive Christianity


We believe that it is an expression of our faith to question traditional ways of thinking about God, about Jesus, and about the Bible.  We believe in the inherent goodness of human life as a reflection of God’s unconditional love for the creation. 

Progressive theology rejects that Jesus sacrificed himself to atone for human sin.   It holds instead that Jesus showed us how to be in better relationship with God, with the Creation, and with other people, including people who are not of our same religion.  Progressive theology values all persons regardless of their sexual identity and orientation, age, gender, nationality, or faith tradition.


That being said, persons who hold traditional theological beliefs are welcome here, too.  We are all on a journey, and all journeys have value to the whole of the community.  God is Still Speaking through the Holy Spirit, and we are still listening!

Open and Affirming (ONA)

At the United Church of Christ Parker Hilltop we declare ourselves to be Open and Affirming. We welcome into our community persons, their spouses or partners, and their children of every gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression.

We also welcome everyone, regardless of their mental and physical ability, age, racial and cultural identity, economic and social status, faith background, marital standing, and family structure. We invite all to share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, blessings and joys of our congregation's life in Christ.
