OUR MISSION & BELIEFS

OUR MISSION IS TO:
Connect people to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our vision is to create a church where you:
…Experience a real God for your real life. You don’t have to have it all figured out before you come to Him. God loves you right where you are, and we want our church to be a place where you truly experience His love.

…Connect in relationship with God and others. We believe life is meant to be lived in close community with our Creator and the ones He created. Our focus is on helping you connect with and grow closer to God so that you might connect with and grow closer to our community of believers.

…Respond to what God is doing in your life through sharing with and serving others. We want to be a church that shows our faith in the way we live our lives. That’s why we keep our eyes open for ways to serve others while sharing what God has done for us.

OUR BELIEFS:

We believe that the gospel of Christ is the hope of the world, and it’s the heart of the church to bring that hope to others. This belief is the foundation of our church and informs all we preach, teach, and practice.

Additionally, we believe:
… in one God who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
… that Jesus is the Son of God, taking on humanity to reveal God to the world. He is the Savior of this world, taking on our sins through death on a cross and resurrecting so that we might live eternally with God.
… the Holy Spirit dwells in believers and empowers them to live Godly lives.
… that the Bible is the inspired word of God.
… in the power of prayer and we encourage all to take their hearts to God through prayer.
… that all people are made in the likeness of God and that salvation is available to them through Jesus.

We are a United Methodist Church, one of 560 churches within the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference. The United Methodist Church is a 12.8-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens minds and open doors through active engagement with our world. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as “practical divinity” has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
