What is the significance of the UCC logo?
“In keeping with our mission of “being children of God, united in our belief in Christ, and called to love one another as God loves us”, and to deepen our mutual involvement in the aims and work of the General Synod, we declare ourselves to be Open and Affirming, joyfully welcoming people of any sexual orientation, race, gender, age, nationality, marital status, economic circumstances, emotional condition, physical or mental ability to all levels of the church.”
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.
