Because of our unique history of two churches joining together, United Church of Spring Valley (UCSV) is affiliated with two church denominations; the United Church of Christ (UCC) and the Reformed Church in America (RCA). More information on these denominations may be found on their individual websites listed below.
The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With more than 5,100 churches and 1.1 million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where “…they may all be one” (John 17:21).
The Reformed Church in America (RCA) is a fellowship of congregations called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to be the very presence of Jesus Christ in the world.
Our shared task is to equip congregations for ministry–a thousand churches in a million ways doing one thing–following Christ in mission, in a lost and broken world so loved by God.
