The People of the United Methodist Church

Our History:

Our church springs from a rich tradition of studying and spreading the gospel to every corner of society, which began in England in 1729 led by John and Charles Wesley. The United Methodist Church is the result of the 1968 union of the Evangelical United Brethren and The Methodist churches.

Our Mission:

We continue our devotion to making disciples of Jesus Christ. All preaching and teaching is grounded in Scripture, inspired by Christian tradition, tested by reason, and enlivened by personal experience. All persons, regardless of race, color, national origin, status, or economic condition are welcome to attend our churches, receive Holy Communion, be baptized and admitted into membership.

Our Belief:

We believe in One God– expressed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The heart of our Christian faith is Christ’s ministry of outreaching love. We are all called to minister wherever Christ would have us work to heal and free others. United Methodists believe in God’s grace, which means the unearned and loving action of God in our daily lives. In spite of suffering, violence, and evil in the world, we assert that God’s grace exists everywhere. Despite any circumstances, we remain creatures brought to life by a just and loving God. The reign of God is both a present and a future reality.
