 Here's A Bit On How We Think About Things....
                    
In the Wesleyan Tradition it would be difficult if not impossible to make a definitive statement of what United Methodists believe. We are a diverse people of faith in many ways. We invite you to Come Grow Us in your journey of understanding the calling of God in your life. Recognizing that the following is far from complete and also being open to the continual revelation of God in our understanding, this brief statement shares just a bit of what it means to be United Methodist.
 

Ø  With Christians of other communions we confess belief in the triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Ø  We believe in the mystery of salvation in and through Jesus Christ.

Ø  We believe that God's redemptive love is realized in human life by the activity of the Holy Spirit, both in personal experience and in the community of believers.

Ø  We understand ourselves to be part of Christ's universal church.

Ø  We believe that the reign of God is both a present and future reality.

Ø  We recognize the authority of Scripture in the matters of faith, the confession that our justification as sinners is by grace through faith, and the sober reality that the church is in need of continual reformation and renewal.

 

Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.   (Jesus -- in Matthew 28:19-20)
 
Our vision is to be a center for Christian growth and outreach. Our purpose is to represent God by helping people to grow in faith and understanding, grow in friendship and unity of spirit, grow in service and stewardship, and grow in caring and love.
 
Our core values reflect our Christ: 
Caring for others
Honoring Christ
Reading God’s Word
 Increasing the Kingdom
Serving God and others
Trusting God for guidance
 
Jesus invites us to "Come, follow me" (Mark 1:17), and to grow with him being the source of our life ...I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing”. (John 15:5). 
Come Grow With Us!
