About the United Methodist Church
Regardless of one’s age, race, life-story, or standpoint, each unique individual is welcomed and loved within our church. No matter where a branch of the United Methodist Church may be located, the underlying structure remains the same; we call that “connectionalism.”
The Methodist movement began as a reform movement within the Anglican Church. Founder John Wesley sought to “spread scriptural holiness thoughout the land.” We passionately uphold this heritage as we seek to follow and live the teachings of Jesus who taught us to:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
…from this “Great Commission,” our church’s mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and we uphold this all-encompassing objective through four basic principles: welcoming, worshiping, nurturing, and sending.
