The United Methodist Church is a global denomination seeking to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Originally founded by John Wesley, Methodism has long placed its primary emphasis on holy living, or putting faith and love into action.
St. Helens First UMC is committed to loving God and loving our neighbor as we seek to grow in relationship with God. This is most evident through our Spirit-filled worship and music, biblical and thought-provoking preaching and teaching, and outreach and missions.
United Methodists believe in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God has been revealed through the Bible, especially through the witness of the New Testament and ongoing presence of the Holy Spirit. What has traditionally distinguished United Methodists from other Christian denominations is our emphasis on God’s grace, which we believe extends to everyone, everywhere.
