We are United
United Church was created to show the love of Jesus, in action, to Apex and its surrounding communities!
Founded in 2021 by two pastors with more than thirty years of ministry experience, United Church seeks to follow God’s vision and direction, serving faithfully and with tremendous impact in Wake County and beyond.
Our dedicated team of pastors and staff are here to provide spiritual guidance and support – as well as resources to help you on your faith journey.
United Kids exists to connect kids to a relationship with Jesus, by providing an experience kids love to participate in each week and partnering with parents to build kids’ personal faith.
United Church cares about your family and your peace of mind as a parent, so every kids’ environment is clean, safe and secure. Each area is staffed with incredible volunteers who build relationships with each child, reinforcing the faith you and your kids share at home.
At United, we believe students are the church of today!

We believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God, also known as The Trinity.
(see Genesis 1:1, 26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100 percent God and 100 percent man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for humankind and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. We believe Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the Cross, according to the Scriptures. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. As a result, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected—the saved will be resurrected to life, and the lost to eternal damnation.
(see Isaiah 9:6; Luke 24:16,36,39; John 1:1,14; 2:19- 21; 20:26-28; 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23; 2:5,6;3:21; 1 Timothy 2:5, 3:16)
We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. We believe He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. We believe He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
(see Joel 2:28,29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5; 2:1-4,17,38-39; 8:14-17; 10:38,44-47; 11:15-17; 19:1-6)
The Bible is the definitive record of God’s dealings with humankind. It was written by persons of faith who were directed by the Spirit of God to record events in history that revealed the redemptive nature of God. Its message is one of judgment for the sins of humanity alongside the message of hope and salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the ultimate truth and reliable authority for our understanding of God and His dealings with us. It is truth, without any mixture of error. Without it, we would have only a subjective and speculative knowledge of who God is and what His purpose is for creation.
(see 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
Humankind was created in the image of God, the crowning achievement of God’s creative handiwork. However, this image was permanently marred shortly after creation when human beings chose to disobey the One who had made them. This disobedience led to separation from God, both spiritually and physically. All human beings have chosen to follow this path of rebellion against God and no one is without sin. The sin of all persons carries with it the penalty of death, both physical and spiritual. Since we are so inclined toward sin, we cannot achieve the degree of holiness necessary to stand in God’s holy presence.
(see Genesis 1:27; 3; Proverbs 20:9; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 31:30; Matthew 5:48; Romans 3:20,23, 6:23; Galatians 3:22; James 2:10)
We believe we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ—His death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human effort.
(see Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10; Galatians 2:16; 3:18; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 9:22)
God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
(See Isaiah 2:4; 11:9; Matthew 16:27; 18:8-9; 19:28; 24:27,30,36,44; 25:31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38; 9:43-48; Luke 12:40,48; 16:19-26; 17:22- 37; 21:27-28; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 17:31; Romans 14:10; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 15:24- 28,35-58; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Philippians 3:20-21; Colossians 1:5, 3:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 5:1; 2 Thessalonians 1:7; 2; 1 Timothy 6:14; 2 Timothy 4:1,8; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:27-28; James 5:8; 2 Peter 3:7; 1 John 2:28; 3:2; Jude 14; Revelation 1:18; 3:11; 20:1-22:13)
