We are 1 mile south of Arizona State University on S. College Ave. We seek to live out our faith in Jesus Christ through a commitment to the spiritual practices of:
- Loving God, neighbor and self;
- Giving witness to the light of Christ in the world;
- Calling others to be his disciples; and
- Working for the well-being of the whole creation and all its peoples.
We hope you’ll come join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
University Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) is an open, dynamic Christian community that invites all seekers to join with us in glorifying God and discovering God’s will as expressed in Jesus Christ. We celebrate God’s love in joyful worship and learning, demonstrate Christ’s compassion in generous service to others, and experience Christ’s love in supportive fellowship.

Statement of Diversity
We believe in one God, known to us especially through the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, yet known to other traditions by different names. We seek to challenge injustice, discrimination and inequality wherever it exists, and to transform the world through the inclusive love of God. Beginning with ourselves and looking beyond our congregation, we celebrate the image of God in every person. When we gather in the presence of God, actively inviting and welcoming all into an inclusive community of love, a sacred space is created.

Our vision is that UPC is called to glorify God and to take the light of God out into the world. We believe that Jesus calls us to have an open and inclusive worship with a spirit of faith that welcomes all. We seek to actively listen for God and the Holy Spirit among us by nurturing one another’s faith, by teaching through thought and deed, and by praying as individuals and as a community. We believe that God has commissioned us to seek justice for all who feel hunger, hurt and pain. We seek to demonstrate our love in Christ by generously offering our human and material resources to helping others.
