“Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors"


 

The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

 

The United Methodist Church is the largest mainline Protestant denomination in the United States, a 12.3-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world.  The Methodist Church began as a revival movement in the Church of England, started by John Wesley.  John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action.

 

The United Methodist Church shares many beliefs in common with other Christian denominations, with a unique emphasis on grace:
-We believe in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
- We have faith in the mystery of salvation in and through Jesus Christ. 
- We believe that God's redemptive love is made known to us by the activity of the Holy Spirit
- We recognize that the kingdom of God is both a present and future reality. 
- We recognize the authority of Scripture in matters of faith
- We acknowledge we are justified as sinners by grace through faith
- We celebrate that all Christians participate in ministry through reaching out in mission and service to the world.
