“Come, let us worship and bow down! Let us kneel before the Lord, our maker!” - Psalm 95:6

 

 


On the first day of the week, we gather 9a and 10:30a as a community to hear the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe worship challenges us, offers us hope and casts the vision God has for our church. Jesus says, “God is spirit, and it is necessary to worship God in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). Our services are best described as a modern translation of historic Christian worship. We prayerfully craft each experience to include the Lord's Prayer, the Apostles' Creed, responsive readings and Holy Communion.  Our worship team makes tradition accessible in a relaxed environment by leading our community with a variety of musical instruments, classic hymns and modern songs!

 

WE BELIEVE WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS...

…In God, who is One, revealed in Three distinct “persons”: God the Father is our Creator, God the Son is Jesus our Redeemer, and God the Holy Spirit is God with us now.

…In the mystery and gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrates God's redeeming love. Human beings experience abundant life on earth and in eternity through a prayerful relationship with Jesus Christ.

…The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading, God's challenge, or God's support or comfort, it's the Holy Spirit at work in us.

…The Bible is God’s Word and is the primary authority for our faith and how we should live. It is the sweeping story of God’s creation, correction, care and redemption of the world.

…Humanity is made in the image of the Creator (Genesis 1:27) and every person has sacred worth. Like God we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create. Humans are imperfect and in need of a relationship with God in Jesus Christ to live into our potential as God’s image-bearers.

…The Church is the Body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. The Church is commissioned to be a sign and an agent of God’s redemption.

…The Kingdom of God is both a present reality on earth and our future hope.

WE BELIEVE UNIQUELY AS UNITED METHODISTS...

...That God desires us to model our lives after Jesus who balanced a vibrant personal faith with concern and action to help the vulnerable in our communities. For this reason we believe our church is called to respond to meet the basic human needs of those around us, as a witness to our faith. 

...That God seeks us out when we are lost and awakens our hearts to faith, that we are saved by confessing our belief in Jesus, and that God helps to grow throughout our lives more and more into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

...That in the essentials of faith we should find unity, in the non-essentials we should grant liberty, and in all things we should exercise charity. Christians do not have to believe the same on every particular issue in order to love one another and find unity in seeking to follow Jesus.
