THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST SYMBOL
What does it mean?
The symbol of the United Church of Christ comprises a crown, cross, and orb enclosed within a double oval bearing the name of the church and the prayer of Jesus—"that they may all be one" (John 17:21). It is based on an ancient Christian symbol.
The crown symbolizes the sovereignty of Christ—who expresses God's power through love.
The cross recalls the suffering of Christ—his arms outstretched on the wood of the cross for the salvation of humanity.
The orb represents the world. It is divided but at the same time whole, and the cross of Jesus reaches into its depths. The division of the orb into three parts also reminds us of Jesus' call to be his "witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8). Jesus wants us to bring God's love to every corner of the earth.
The prayer reflects our historic commitment to the restoration of unity among the separated churches of Jesus Christ, and our faith that the day will come when all humanity will be gathered by God into one family.
