What We Believe

The United Methodist Church is an 12.8-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world. Read more about the church’s mission statement.

John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

WITNESS:

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

Some informative videos tell about what the United Methodist Church believes and how it acts on those beliefs in society to change lives.

MEMBERSHIP:

 The vows of membership in the United Methodist Church are
  • To be loyal to Christ through The United Methodist Church and do all in your power to strengthen its ministries;
  • To faithfully participate in its ministries by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness.
Specific information is offered about the United Methodist Church online at www.umc.org or you may make an appointment to meet with the pastor to discuss the matter in more detail.

Overall we believe that each member has an active role to play in fulfilling the mission of the Church (through prayer, presence, gifts, service and witness), that every member has a duty to participate in the cooperate life of the church (through prayer, presence, gifts, service and witness) and that each one is held accountable for faithfulness to the vows they take and encouraged to faithfully perform and fulfill the membership vows.
