Grace UMC belongs to the United Methodist denomination. They have a mission to Grow in love of God and neighbor, reach new people and heal a broken world. Methodists are known for seeking a vital and life-giving relationship with God and a desire to live according to the ways of Jesus in holiness and personal maturity. They are also known to be people who seek justice and healing for a broken world.
Methodists approach scripture according to the Wesleyan Quadrilateral keeping in mind scripture, reason, experience and tradition as they examine the Bible. This tradition helps us navigate effectively between an ancient holy word and a contemporary world.
The Methodist denomination was born of a pietist spiritual revival during a time of great injustice among the poor. John Wesley had a heart to include everyone in the new community. He was an early abolitionist and worked toward the equality of women in the church. Wesley crafted his beliefs to include both personal holiness and maturity as well as social holiness so that the world might truly know the good news of God.
As people who seek to follow Jesus we are called to engage both with God spiritually and others with compassion and justice.
