As a member of the body of Christ, in the United Methodist tradition, we are faithful to our traditions and open to the Spirit's work in our new adventures in faith.
United Methodism is the second largest Protestant denomination in America. We are evangelical and moderate in our approach. We hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith in word and practice. We value intellect and reason, tradition, and experience. We look to the Bible as the authoritive rule both in faith and in practice. We are people of Grace. We are a church on the move in mission to local communities. We understand the world is not always a world of black and white answers and we are willing to ask the hard questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with compassion. We are all sinners saved by grace in Jesus, therefore, we welcome anyone interested in learning about the Christian faith.
We are known for an emphasis on personal faith, passionate preaching, mission to our neighbors, worship that is lively, and small groups where people may grow to be disciples of Jesus the Christ! We have our origins in the Church of England.
