United Methodists are the second largest Protestant denomination in America. Methodists have played a significant role in shaping our nation, from missionaries on the frontiers, to hospitals, and universities.

United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are known spiritual practices that draw us closer to God while at the same time compassionate practices which reach out to those in need and share Christ's love with the world.

We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time looking to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion.

Methodists have been known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We have historically valued well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that was lively, and small groups where people could grow in faith.

Methodists have open hearts, and open minds–and welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
