Prospect Congregational Church is a member of the United Church of Christ
The symbol of the United Church of Christ comprises a crown, cross and orb enclosed within a double oval bearing the name of the church and the prayer of Jesus, "That they may all be one" (John 17:21). It is based on an ancient Christian symbol called the "Cross of Victory" or the "Cross Triumphant." The crown symbolizes the sovereignty of Christ. The cross recalls the suffering of Christ—his arms outstretched on the wood of the cross—for the salvation of humanity. The orb, divided into three parts, reminds us of Jesus command to be his "witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8). The verse from Scripture reflects our historic commitment to the restoration of unity among the separated churches of Jesus Christ.
We covenant with God and with one another to engage ourselves in the sacred obligation to keep the commandments of God, to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ, and to bind ourselves in Christian love and fellowship. We are united in striving to know the will of God as taught in the Holy Scriptures, and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We promise to worship faithfully, to observe the sacraments, to pledge our stewardship of talent and treasure, to support the church and its worldwide mission, and to look with faith for the triumph of righteousness and the life everlasting.
