The following information is from the United Church of Canada: "A Congregation Organization Handbook".
Who We Are On June 10, 1925 the union of four denominations–Methodist, Congregationalist, Presbyterian, and local Union churches–was solemnized and the United Church of Canada was born. In 1968, the Evangelical United Brethren became part of the United Church of Canada.
Although five denominations joined to form one, traditions from each remain today. The United Church of Canada celebrates diversity and cherishes its ability to “agree to disagree”.
What We Believe Throughout our history, we have interpreted our faith in changing times. The Basis of Union (published in 1925) is the original and binding statement of the mission of the United Church. The Basis of Union is found in The Manual, sections 1.1-16.4. Our mission statement was expressed again in 1968 as “A New Creed”, which has been revised over time to its current form:
We are not alone, we live in God’s world. We believe in God: who has created and is creating, who has come in Jesus the Word made flesh, to reconcile and make new, who works in us and others by the Spirit. We trust in God. We are called to be the Church: to celebrate God’s presence, to live with respect in Creation, to love and serve others, to seek justice and resist evil, to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope. In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone. Thanks be to God.
