What we believe
OUR MISSION: Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world (2012 United Methodist Book of Discipline). OUR VISION: We are a joyful community striving to LOVE God and others GROW whole in Christian maturity REACH those with no relationship to Christ SERVE God and our brothers and sisters in need.
We believe in salvation. We believe in the creator God, the continuing presence of the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ as the clear focus of our faith and salvation. We believe in the Bible. The Bible is the story of God's love for humanity. It is the story of what God did, what God is doing and what God will do in the future. These timeless truths are the primary source for what we believe and what we do. We believe in mission. We believe that all people matter to God and therefore matter to us. Persons outside the church are among God's highest priority. We believe in the priesthood of all believers. We believe that it is the responsibility of every believer to discover and use the spiritual gifts and passions given by God for ministry. We believe that disciples should be in loving service to others. We believe in the worship principle. We believe that active participation in the corporate worship of God is foundational to our spiritual health. We believe in meaningful membership. We believe in the diligent support of the church through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. Membership makes a difference in how we live.
