- UCC – What We Believe
We believe that the UCC is called to be a prophetic church. As in the tradition of the prophets and apostles, God calls the church to speak truth to power, liberate the oppressed, care for the poor and comfort the afflicted. We believe in the power of peace , and work for nonviolent solutions to local, national, and international problems.

At a recent meeting of the Mississippi River Commission in Rosedale, all the testimony was in favor of the project, says Charles Grayson, director of the Bigger Pie Forum, a nonprofit group that promotes fiscally conservative economic development in Mississippi. A new Audubon report pinpoints 30 projects that, if financed, would be a boon for birds and people alike.
