Our community of faith at First United Methodist Church is a place where people are encouraged to hear God's voice, love one another, show compassion to others, and follow Jesus more closely than ever before. We desire to pour forth God's love in every direction, so our local and global community can be transformed. Specifically, we want to help the lost ones be found, the children be loved, the broken be healed, the races be reconciled, and the poor be lifted up.
Our Core Values
- LOVE GOD: We seek to be Christ-centered and live in God's GLORY, through worship, prayer, and reading Scripture. Led by the Holy Spirit, we choose to follow God's will in our decisions.
It is only through God's GRACE that we receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and that we love and follow God first in our lives.
- BUILD COMMUNITY: Through discipleship, we experience GROWTH together in faith, no matter where we are on our spiritual journey. We invest in people of all ages, and we empower others to lead. As we grow in our spiritual life, it becomes our responsibility to help those who are early in their faith journey.
In Christ, we commit to integrity and unity by living authentically, practicing humility, being respectful, and showing kindness as we love one another. This family of faith cares for and supports one another in GROUP as we do life together. All are welcome here.
- UNLEASH COMPASSION: As a missional church, we use our individual GIFTEDNESS to reach out with compassion to others both locally and globally, showing the love of Jesus.
We live out GENEROSITY with our time, talents, gifts, service, and witness. We follow Christ's example of serving others, putting their needs ahead of our own.
