To be disciples of Christ dedicated to sharing God's Word and love throughout our community and the world by serving, nurturing, teaching, and preaching the glory of God.
As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church. We reflect critically on our biblical and theological heritage to faithfully express our views and beliefs.
These are the core beliefs of the United Methodist Church:
God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.
We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death, and resurrection demonstrates God's redeeming love.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work.
Genesis 1:27 asserts that we've been made in the image of the Creator. Like God we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create.
The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ's life and ministry in the world today.
We believe that the Bible is God's Word and is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
