Deer Park United Church is an inclusive, open, and progressive community of faith within the liberal Christian tradition, with its roots in the social gospel.
We take the Bible seriously, but not literally, recognizing that parts of the tradition came out of specific historical circumstances and need re-interpretation for our time.
We believe that a questioning theology is a healthy part of one’s spiritual journey.
We are called to live God’s vision of “Coming alive” by:
loving and serving others;
respecting all creation;
embracing diversity, such as sexual orientation, gender, age, race, religion, occupation, or socio-economic status;
and challenging injustices to create a safe sanctuary for all people to be themselves.
With this understanding of who we are, we “Come alive through connecting, reflecting, and serving.”
