The Southwest Conference of the United Church of Christ is the regional body that provides support and services to local UCC congregations and clergy within Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. We are proud of our progressive view of the Gospel and our mission statement, “extravagantly welcoming and affirming followers of Christ called to embody God’s unconditional justice and love” is manifested in the ways we live out every day. The Conference and over half of our churches have approved an “Open and Affirming” covenant welcoming all people, without regard to sexual orientation, into the life and ministry of the congregation. Although each congregation is autonomous, we are all connected by covenant and are welcoming to all.
