What to Expect
As United Methodists, we believe in the living witness of Jesus Christ at the center of the Church’s life and witness. We believe in the reality of sin, and the need for forgiveness. We believe Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead in order to bring us to God, and shows us the way to live a full life, unbound by the past and unfettered for the future. We bear witness to a living faith by striving and wrestling with ancient Scriptures applied to contemporary life. Additionally, we bear witness by our lives and our service to others, as we seek to live out service to God and neighbor.
We worship a living God who offers new life in Christ. We use ancient creeds of the Church, time-proven hymns and contemporary music as means to take our place in 2,000 years of Christian worship as well as modern expressions of faith. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, believed that the living core of the Christian faith was revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, brought to life in personal experience, and confirmed by reason.
We believe that being together as a family of God to worship our Lord does make a difference - personally and as a community of believers. Life is too hard to try to live alone. We offer a community for meaningful relationships, relevant worship and service can make a difference in your life and the lives of others. We serve others in gratitude for what God has done for us, and can be surprised to find that love grows as we give it away. Not everyone agrees with each other, but we learn to live together as brothers and sisters in Christ. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, is attributed with saying: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity (love).” Everyone is welcome.
We’re glad you’re here and want to help you connect, find a small group, and get to events for you and/ or your family.Get Started
