God can do amazing things through the power of prayer, action and voice. Together we can make a difference for Jesus.

Our Beliefs

As a United Methodist church, we believe in the Holy Trinity - God, the creator, Jesus, the savior, and the Holy Spirit, the sustainer. We believe that Christ calls his people to live in peace, seeking justice, and above all, loving each person as a child of God with sacred worth.

Yes, do it! Love people! All people are called to love like Jesus. Jesus loved and loves all people. We are called to do the same. There are no exceptions to this rule. Jesus gave his life in order to show just how much he loved us. We don’t get to pick and choose who we are supposed to love. We are just supposed to do it! Love!
Nope. Don’t do it! We are called to love and not hate. While we have many people in our lives who may cause us pain, we are called to forgiveness, not hate. There is no one person or group of people we are called to hate. Just don’t do it!
Experience it and share it! Jesus calls us to live in joy! While we know there is pain in life, we also know there is joy in Christ. When we surrender to God and the good work he is doing in our lives, we can find pure joy!

All life is sacred. Each breath we are given is a gift given by God. We are called to protect it, enrich it, and live it. We do not get to decide whose life is more or less sacred, only God can do that.
Jesus did not say we would not struggle, but that he would be with us in the struggle. Surely we all have seasons of struggle, but we are called to patience, trust and faith.
Jesus is Lord of all and Servant of all. We are called to be servants, with Christ – to our neighbor, our church, our community and our world. How will you join us to serve?

Loving God. Loving People.
