Our Vision

LIVE WITH JESUS TO LIVE LIKE JESUS!

Jesus said: Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly. (Mt. 11:28-30)

Live With Jesus to Live Like Jesus

Our Rhythm

We’re learning to make the “Up, In, and Out” rhythm found in the story of Jesus life the rhythm of our lives.

Up

We go “Up” in worship, connecting with God through song, scripture, prayer, and study.

In

We go “In” into community, connecting with others in conversation, prayer, and ministry.

Out

We go "Out" in mission, joining Jesus as He brings forgiveness, hope and healing to our broken world.

Our Beliefs

God has chosen to reveal Himself and His truth through the Bible, so we read, study and teach the Bible. The creeds of the early church, such as the Apostle’s Creed below, are a helpful summary of biblical teaching.

We believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

The Good News that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to save the world from the power of sin, death, and the devil is our message. Jesus’ death and resurrection is the Good News of God that changes lives!
Brothers John and Charles Wesley in 18th century England were founders of those called Methodists. They invited people to experience and enjoy God’s undeserved grace and then put that grace into practice in their daily living, working in their communities to bring about needed change.
