What We Believe

We are members of the United Methodist Church, the second-largest protestant denomination in America and the third-largest in the world. Methodists share the same core beliefs in God, sin and salvation through Jesus Christ as all Christians. However, there are a few beliefs and practices that set us apart from other denominations.

Started in the 1700s by John Wesley and a small group of others, Methodism is founded on the idea that faith is a matter of both the heart and the mind. Through charity, evangelism and careful, methodical study of the Bible—that’s how “Methodism” got its name—we bring ourselves and each other more in alignment with Christ.

Because of this foundation, we find that our congregation is rich with people from all walks of life, bringing their own unique perspectives of faith to the table. Wherever you’re from, whatever your walk has been, you will find a wonderful home with our church.
