Who are we?

We are an Open and Affirming Faith Community in Portland Maine

In the summer of 2011 two Portland congregations (Williston West - United Church of Christ and Immanuel Baptist - American Baptist Church) voted unanimously to covenant, live and work together as one church, combining the ministries of each in a singular, energetic, Christian mission in the city of Portland, Maine. We bring together the best of two historic American denominations! Read more from a 2011 Portland Press Herald story here.
