Our History

Our History

Phoenix URC was launched in 1996 with a small group of families  and individuals who shared a common desire to see a vigorous  gospel-centered church planted in Phoenix. Admittedly, its formation began in response to disturbing theological trends in the federation to which it once belonged. Wanting to secure a theological and spiritual future for ourselves, we set about exploring our options.

Initially, Phoenix United was an independent church. During this initial stage of independency a new federation of like-minded Reformed churches called the United Reformed Churches of North America (URCNA) began. Believing that the Bible teaches mutual encouragement and  accountability, we joined the URCNA within a few years of our inception. Our affiliation with this federation has been an great blessing to us.

Since our humble beginning, we have seen God's hand clearly at work. God has blessed us with the addition of individuals and families, wonderful relationships, fulfilling worship, substantive teaching,  mission consciousness, and an expectation that He has yet to do more than what could ever ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20). To God be the glory!
