Who We Are

We are a Christ-centered community of believers who welcome all who would come and share in the abundant life that Jesus promises. As a faithful congregation in the United Methodist tradition, we affirm our denominational mission “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

Our vision is:

…to be a church where people are drawn, because of the love we share, into a relationship with Jesus and his church. (John 13:34-35)

Our mission is:

…to welcome all people as they are and support them as they grow in faith.

We do this:

… by providing a safe place where God’s unfailing love is offered to all.

… by deepening our understanding and appreciation for God’s sacred word as the basis of our Christian faith.

… by equipping and encouraging each of our members to share God’s Love and God’s Good News with others, both inside and outside the walls of the church.
