What We Believe
Inspiring people to live and love like Jesus.
Welcome to St. Paul’s United Methodist Church.
No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
We believe that
Love changes lives, and therefore, we are called to love all people as Jesus Christ loves us.
Worship is a celebration of God with one another, where our souls are nurtured through scripture, message, music, and prayer.
Service provides an opportunity to share God’s love and compassion as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.
Spiritual growth is our ongoing journey, where we grow in faith with one another, living in grace and walking in love.
The Disciple’s Path
As we live and love like Jesus, we participate in its ministries through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our witness, and our service.
The Definition of a Methodist according to John Wesley
John Wesley used the following passage from Matthew’s Gospel in answer to the question, “What is a Methodist?”
‘Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?’ He said to him, ‘“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’
