Mission and Values


We are excited about what God is doing in this dynamic, growing church. Our purpose here at First Church is summed up in the following core statements:

 Core Belief: We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior and central to our daily lives, the way to eternal life and the Bible is the written word of God.

 Core Mission: Inviting people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

 Core Focus: To develop opportunities where people can encounter and experience Jesus Christ in a relationship with others.

 Spiritual Growth: From our earliest roots of Methodism, Christians were seen in small groups encouraging one another in the Faith and growing in Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures and applying them to every day life.

 Spiritual Growth or Christian Education has always been a priority at FUMC. Our congregation is packed with opportunities to learn about and experience the good news of Jesus Christ through bible studies, seminars, small groups, special events and Sunday school for adults and children
