Our Beliefs


First United Methodist Church teaches that our God:

  • Created and is sustaining all things, and God’s truth is revealed to us in the Bible 

  • Entered human history in Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified and risen Savior, that we might know we are loved and empowered by God’s grace alone

  • Provided a foundation for ministry in the historical witness of the Christian Church, especially in the ecumenical creeds

  • Works through His people to do redeeming work by the power of the Holy Spirit

  • Changes lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ, calling Christians to live lives of:

    • Continuous renewal in heart and mind

    • Faithful and fervent worship both privately and corporately

    • Welcome and witness to all no matter where they are on life’s journey of faith

    • Practicing compassion and justice as signs of Christ’s presence in the world
