St John's United Methodist Church
The vision of St. John’s UMC is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by reaching out to God’s community through worship, witness, nurture, and service.
Grace is a primary emphasis within the United Methodist Church. Grace is the undeserved, unmerited, and loving action of God in human existence. Through grace, God summons us to repentance, pardons us, claims us as new people in Christ, and gives us hope of life eternal. In spite of suffering, violence, and evil, we assert that God's grace is present everywhere. Despite our brokenness, we remain people created by a just and merciful God. God's grace and human activity work together in faith and good works. While faith is the only response essential for salvation, salvation shows itself in good works. Personal salvation always involves service to the world. We believe that Jesus calls us to put our love into action. The United Methodist Church reaches out to establish peace and justice in the world through many ministries.
We believe that there are two sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion. Both are initiated by Jesus Christ as symbols and pledges of God's love for us. Entrance into the church is acknowledged in baptism and may include persons of all ages. Baptism is followed by nurture and in the growing awareness of the baptized of Christ's claim upon their lives. Persons baptized as infants and children accept baptismal promises in Confirmation. We baptize persons by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion.
We believe the Lord's Supper is a memorial of the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ and a symbol of the union Christians have with Christ and with one another. All persons -- saints and sinners, children and adults, members and guests -- are welcomed at our Savior's table.
The Universal Church
With other Christians, we declare the essential oneness of the church in Christ Jesus. We affirm our unity with other Christian communities as we confess one holy, universal, and apostolic church. As a sign of our unity, we welcome persons baptized in and members of other Christian communions.
