Our Beliefs

OUR PURPOSE

"Connecting People with God"

God wants to be in relationship with us...

(For God so love the world)

that God would do anything...

(gave the only begotten son)

to connect with us.

(so that those who believe might have everlasting life--John 3:16 paraphrase)

Our one purpose is to connect all people with God, with each other, with deeper spirituality, and in service to the world using:

  • Worship
  • Small groups
  • Education
  • Spiritual practices
  • Community Service
  • And World Missions

OUR DOCTRINE

We are a mainline protestant church in the Wesleyan tradition.

 

COMMUNION

Anyone who loves God and desires to live in love with their neighbor is welcome to receive communion. No one will be turned away.

BAPTISM AND MEMBERSHIP

We welcome everyone to be part of us. When you are ready to be baptized or become a member, we would love to help. Call the office or visit with the pastor.

Members promise to do the following:

To renounce the spiritual forces of wickedness, reject the evil powers of the world, and repent of their sins;

To accept the freedom and power God gives them to resist evil, injustice, and oppression;

To confess Jesus Christ as Savior, put their whole trust in his grace, and promise to serve him as their Lord;

To remain faithful members of Christ's holy church and serve as Christ's representatives in the world;

To be loyal to Christ through The United Methodist Church and do all in their power to strengthen its ministries;

To faithfully participate in its ministries by their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service and their witness;

To receive and profess the Christian faith as contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.
