This faith document was created by the founding members of Good Shepherd United Church of Christ, shortly after the church’s founding in Cary, in 1987. Every new member of the church signs a copy of covenant when joining the church. Signatures of every member of the church from it’s outset are displayed on wall hangings in the church sanctuary.


Responding to the Grace and love of God shown to us through Jesus Christ, we covenant with God and one another as the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ:

    • to joyfully share in worship

    • to study and practice in the Word of God

    • to bind our lives together in trust and love as a family in Jesus Christ

    • to dedicate our time, talents and resources in celebrating God’s love for all people and for all creation


Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we freely commit ourselves to follow the way of the crucified and risen Christ.
