What We Believe

First United Methodist Church of Auburn is enthusiastically United Methodist. As such we have named five critical items that we believe are central to living out our faith.

Unconditional Love and Acceptance

We believe in the sacred worth of every person and offer God’s non-judgmental love to all.

Extravagant Hospitality

We believe we should expand our circle of care to include all our neighbors welcoming them and showing them the love of Jesus.

Connecting through Relationships

We believe in creating a community space for all people to share, connect and participate

Spiritual Growth and Transformation

We believe that through God’s grace everyone should have the opportunity to grow closer to God through worship, learning and to be changed by experiencing God’s love.

Service

We believe we are called to reach out to our community and to the world in hands on service; and that everyone is needed to actively participate in the ministry and mission of the church.
