About Us

Our mission

To connect the unconnected to a community of faith where Jesus Christ transforms them into world changing disciples.

Journey with us

The United Methodist Church is part of a Wesleyan movement that now claims a total of 18 million members of various Methodist churches around the world. There are 8.5 million Methodists in the United States and one million members of the denomination outside of the United States.

The United Methodist Church is part of the Church Universal. All persons, regardless of race, color, national origin, status, or economic condition are welcome to attend its services, receive Holy Communion, and, after taking vows, be baptized and admitted into membership.

Denominational practices and standards are set by General Conferences that meet once every four years. Delegates to that conference are elected by clergy and lay representatives from local churches gathered in regional annual conferences.

love god

Love your God with all your heart, all your might, and all your soul.

love others

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

serve the world

Go out and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
