It’s a Church that touches our hearts and stretches our minds.
It’s a Church that accepts us as we are and yet challenges us to be better.
It’s a Church that gathers us to worship and then sends us out to serve in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ.
We are a Church that encourages a strong pulpit. The people come expecting to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed powerfully.
We are a Church that encourages a strong, warmhearted personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ is at the heart of everything we do.
We are a world-wide Church. You can find a United Methodist Church, mission, school, hospital or clinic in many villages, hamlets, towns or cities around the world.
We are an open, inclusive Church. Our members come from every culture and every socio-economic group and all are embraced.
We are a giving Church. Every person who joins the United Methodist Church promises to serve God and support the Church with our prayers, our presence, our gifts and our service, and that pledge of loyalty enables us to give generously to benevolences and mission efforts.
We are a Church with a family spirit. That family spirit enables us to be there for each other in our joys and sorrows from the cradle to the grave.
We are a Church that reaches out with deep compassion to help hurting people. Our United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is quickly on the scene all over the world wherever there is a natural disaster or any kind of pain or heartache to provide aid and love and care. We feed more than a million children every day.
We are a Church with a great social creed that has been an inspiration to all in Christendom.
We continue Christ’s ministry of preaching, teaching healing and caring.
That’s what’s great about being a United Methodist!
