What We Believe
"The practice of personal bible study, prayer, and reflection for spiritual growth is essential to daily life. The bible is the inspired Word of God and is solid ground for the understanding of God, humanity, and life. Concerning the nature and mission of the church, it is to love God and love others, to make disciples of Jesus Christ, to offer care and concern to a hurting world, and to proclaim a gospel of love, grace, forgiveness, and salvation."
- Pastor Kent Crow
As part of the worldwide movement of grace known as the United Methodist Church we exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We believe a great commitment to the Great Commission and the Great Commandment will grow a great church, community, and world!
The Great Commandment: Jesus said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul…and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:36-40)
The Great Commission: Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)
Worship: to "Love God with all your heart"
Ministry: to "Love your neighbor as yourself"
Evangelism: to "Go and make disciples"
Discipleship: to "Teach them…all things"
