What We Believe
United Methodist Christians are Grace-filled, Missional, Practical and Connectional.
We believe in grace, not judgment, as the starting point for understanding the love of God and our relationship to God.
We serve others in Jesus’ name and proclaim the Gospel through word and deed.
Our faith makes a difference in the way we live each day.
Every United Methodist congregation is connected to every other one. While there are certain beliefs we all share as Christians and United Methodists, each congregation may live into those beliefs differently, depending on the context of their ministry.

What That Looks Like
At Emmanuel Community UMC, our discipleship grows out of our evangelical heritage which focuses on a relationship with Jesus Christ. Imitating Christ expects that we love God, people, and self. A just society is close to our heart as we serve to transform the world.
