Our Beliefs

A Song of Faith

The words opposite begin A Song of Faith, the United Church of Canada’s Statement of Faith (2006). At Applewood United Church, we do not have all the answers. We are continuously questioning and searching for what we each believe.

Our Mission
Our Mission is to celebrate the Good News by sharing with others:

  • The joy of fellowship
  • The strength of worship,
  • The power of learning,
  • And the challenge of justice.

Mission Statement 2014
Applewood United Church takes its inspiration from the life of Jesus. As an open, welcoming, compassionate community, we
are inclusive and respect diverse understandings of God. We recognize our need for spiritual nourishment.

We are intentional in our inclusiveness.
We welcome unconditionally people of all ages, races, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, ethnic origins and economic circumstances.

We will build on our strengths and add new ones, seeking to be a more effective church.
We will inspire people to “Go out and make a difference in the world!” As a result of these efforts, we will grow as people and as a faith community.
