about us // vision

A piece candle from a sister church at Twin Buttes.

CAIM's vision is that we are an integral part of the life of the United Church of Christ.  We maintain our Indian traditions by employing our Native values and culture to witness in our communities through an authentic and postcolonial Indian expression of the Christian faith.  We are a gathering “place” for all UCC Indian people who seek such a “place.”

CAIM advocates for Indian justice in Washington, DC, and in the UCC conferences where our people reside.  We reach out to all in our fellowship while speaking the truth in love concerning our denomination's complicity in historic wrongs and continued paternalism and racism.  We are a vital participant in the Council for Racial and Ethnic Ministries of the UCC.

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
