Church membership includes a commitment to faith in Jesus Christ which exhibits itself in through love and service to God and people. When you join, you will be asked, “Will you be loyal to the United Methodist Church and uphold it with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service and your witness?”
We need God's guidance in order to be the church, God’s hands and heart in the world.
Our presence is a visible witness to our faith. The inspiration, guidance, hope, comfort, strength, and peace we find in church and worship allow us to express our commitment to Christ in all aspects of life.
We give gifts as a thankful response to all God has given us and as a reminder that we are stewards over what God has entrusted to us. Systematic giving helps to establish and maintain ministries that are made possible only through the individual gifts of many.
Christ came not to be served, but to serve. We are called to follow his example and share our God-given gifts and abilities with others.
To share our witness is to live a life in Christ and share God's love and grace with others.
