Our Vision

The vision of The Unified Old Catholic Church is to bring the Love of Christ and the Kingdom of God to those who are marginalized, disenfranchised and rejected by the mainstream churches. In keeping with our vision, we believe that the following concepts best describe the continuing work of our church, and the work the Lord has given us to do:

We, as examples of our Christ, will strive to provide a loving environment where everyone can come to know, love, and fully serve our Lord, through the reception of the Sacraments, and participation in the church community.

We, as Old Catholics and Christians, we will encourage all people to enhance their own lives by sharing in our vision, acknowledging our heritage, and becoming fully active participants in the building of the Lord’s church and a truly Christ-centered life.

We, as a body of believers, we will strive to look beyond divisions and disputes, and strive to understand what it means to be a committed Christian today, grounded in the Scriptures, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, in the light of the experience of Reason and Apostolic Tradition. We hold a vision for a more mature and relational Christianity, which reconciles genuine faith and commitment with intelligence and experience.

We will continue to recognize the right of women to equality at all levels of society and the Church, including ordained ministry.

We will always respect a couple’s right to plan their families in a responsible way.

We will continue to offer the opportunity for lay or ordained ministry, admitting men and women to religious life and to all levels of Holy Orders without regard to marital status, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity or physical disability.
We will continue to offer the Sacrament of Marriage for sufficiently prepared couples, regardless of gender, as well as second marriages for properly disposed divorced persons.

We will constantly strive, as committed Christians, to help those who are less fortunate receive the services they need and to help those who are homeless, mentally or physically ill, or who are struggling with a wide variety of addictions to find the resources needed to resolve their particular needs.

We will endeavor to educate our members in the Scriptures, the traditions, and the beliefs of The Unified Old Catholic Church.

We will provide quality education to our clergy, thereby making them more effective and more spiritually qualified to lead the faithful.

We shall endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit until we all come into the unity of the faith, at the same time admonishing all brethren that they shall not contend for their different views to the disunity of the body.
