Progressive Christians @ USC


Progressive Christians at USC

WE ARE Christians and other friends @ USC who follow Jesus’ way of love, growing in spirit and service to others.

Advisor:  Rev. Jim Burklo
Student Leader:  Michael Hsu

Welcome!  In loving fellowship and spiritual practice, we follow in the historic traditions of Christian faith, interpreting them in light of social and scientific progress. We find grace in intellectual and contemplative engagement with our faith. We believe there is more value in questioning than in absolute answers: we take the Bible seriously because we don’t have to take it literally. We affirm that other religions can be as good for others as ours is good for us. We strive to make our earth a heavenly place of peace, justice, kindness, and beauty: we don’t believe anybody is going to hell. We affirm LGBT sexuality and we celebrate same-sex marriages.   A ministry of United University Church.
