UJCC was originally 2 different churches from 2 different traditions: the Japanese Congregational Church (1908) and the Christ United Methodist Church (1893). Both churches were a home for Japanese immigrants and Japanese Americans.

    In 1990, the churches merged to better serve their community and the United Japanese Christian Church (UJCC) was born. The creation of UJCC was a historic moment since 2 different churches from 2 different traditions formed 1 united community.

    UJCC continues to maintain its connections with the 2 church traditions. You can learn more about them by using the buttons below


    We believe that kids are the present and future. That’s why we make them a priority in our services, events, and all that we do. From infancy to adulthood, we have programs to help kids become the best versions of themselves. Our mission is to help families through every stage of life.

    We also believe in the power of community. God meets us in our relationships with others. That’s why our programs prioritize relationship building and small groups. Our goal is to provide safe communities of support for growth and transformation.


    Most importantly, you're ALWAYS welcome at UJCC! We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith, you'll always be welcome as part of the UJCC family as we all walk together.

We are what we believe. You see it in our actions, not just hear it in our words.  You can check out any ministry, activity, or event and you’ll see examples of these principles. You can't miss it. We’re not perfect, but we continually strive to be better


These are the core doctrines we believe and teach from the Bible.

  • GOD

    God calls the worlds into being, creates humankind in the divine image, and sets before us the ways of life and death.


    God judges all humanity and all nations by that will of righteousness declared through prophets and apostles. However, God seeks in holy love to save all people from aimlessness and sin.


    In Jesus Christ, the man of Nazareth, our crucified and risen Lord, God has come to us and shared our common lot, conquering sin and death and reconciling the whole creation to its Creator.


    God bestows upon us the Holy Spirit, creating and renewing the church of Jesus Christ, binding in covenant faithful people of all ages, tongues, and races.


    God calls us into the church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship, to be servants in the service of the whole human family, to proclaim the gospel to all the world and resist the powers of evil, to share in Christ’s baptism and eat at his table, to join him in his passion and victory.


    God promises to all who trust in the gospel forgiveness of sins and fullness of grace, courage in the struggle for justice and peace, the presence of the Holy Spirit in trial and rejoicing, and eternal life in that kingdom which has no end.
