What We Believe

Pastor's Corner

The United Methodist Church affirms that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all. We believe God reaches out with mercy and forgiveness to those who repent of their sinfulness. Hearts can be changed under the prompting of grace and the guidance of the Holy Sprit.

We believe that the core of the Christian faith was revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, made vivid in personal experience, and con-firmed by reason.

The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the good news of Godís grace. We continue the mission of seeking, welcoming and gathering persons into the community of the body of Christ.

The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. We send persons into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.

 

"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing."

1 Corinthians 13:1-3
 

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
