We Express Our Love for God Through Active Discipleship

To us, church is about sharing God’s love by offering hope and healing to those looking for more meaning in their
lives. Acts of personal faith and public worship help us grow closer to God, but we also grow in our faith by taking
action outside the church walls to help others.

Christ and His earliest followers reached out to those in need, caring for the sick and abandoned when others
turned away. Like Him, we are drawn to help those suffering from hunger, disease, or injustice. Those recovering
from disaster. Those in need of education, clean water, or simply someone to let them know they are not alone.
We seek to live our faith in ways that create change in the world.

Believe in Each Other

Reaching from the local church to neighboring communities and all around the globe, United Methodists share a
mutually determined common mission. By working together, we accomplish more. A web of local churches with a
global scope, we seek out opportunities to transform lives.

Giving is one of the central themes in the bible; Jesus mentions giving more than he mentions the subjects of prayer, heaven, or hell. Why give online? Well, you don’t have to. It’s a personal preference. However, setting up regular online contributions allows you to be secure in the knowledge that your gifts are received to help the church maintain the support of its missions and ministries.

The phrase “glory of the Lord” is synonymous with splendor, honor, praise, worthiness, etc. The phrase is used to describe the manifestation of God’s greatness (Ex. 16:10) and is seen as a consuming fire (Ex. 24:17), a cloud (1 Kings 8:11), radiance (Ezek. 1:26-28), and brightness (Ezek. 10:4). It fills the tabernacle (Ex. 40:34) and can be seen (Num. 16:42) and can bring fear (Luke 2:9).

Whether it takes place quickly—as in a sudden conversion experience— or gradually—as people find nurture in the church—God’s grace is the key to understanding transformation.  Read more

Wesley and the early Methodists were particularly concerned about inviting people to experience God’s grace and to grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living. They 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.

The distinctive shape of our theological heritage can be seen not only in this emphasis on Christian living, but also in Wesley’s distinctive understanding of God’s saving grace. Although Wesley shared with many other Christians a belief in salvation by grace, he combined them in a powerful way to create distinctive emphases for living the full Christian life. Read more

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
