What we believe
We are a United Methodist Church.

We believe that Jesus Christ leads us into abundant and eternal life. We seek to follow Jesus in our own lives and in our relationships with others. We believe that God created the world with a vision for how we are to live together and that God seeks to save all creation from sin, injustice, and oppression and restore us to peaceful and whole relationships. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we believe that God invites and empowers us to grow and deepen in faith.

Scripture is filled with people who have doubts and ask questions–and God welcomes them. God welcomes you, too. You’re allowed to bring your questions and doubts to church. If you don’t understand something that we’re doing or saying, please ask.
