As a United Methodist Church, we believe that every person is of sacred worth.

Therefore, we believe in Open Hearts – Open Minds – Open Doors.

We believe in applying the Wesley Code in our Zip Code:

          Do all the GOOD we can, 

          By all the MEANS we can, 

          In all the WAYS we can,  

          In all the PLACES we can,  

          At all the TIMES we can,  

          To all the PEOPLE we can, 

          As long as EVER we can.
