Mission of The United Methodist Church

To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

"Follow Me" Discipleship Journey

As a community of Jesus followers, we at ENUMC are passionate about answering His call to become more like Him. Our "Follow Me" discipleship path has been designed to help you grow in your relationship with Christ and also find out how you can be a part of what He is doing in the world today!

Four Steps:

CONNECT with God in a deeper way, with your Christian faith, and with your church.  

DISCOVER your God-given spiritual gifts and your place in God's plan to reach the world.  

ENGAGE the church and the community by participating in activities and ministries that help make other disciples of Jesus.

FLOURISH as you continue to grow as a disciple of Jesus through involvement in our Bible studies, small groups, and ministry inside and outside of the church.

What We Believe

The United Methodist Church is an 11-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors and opens minds through active engagement with our world.  John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

The distinctive shape of our theological heritage can be seen not only in Christian living, but also in Wesley’s distinctive understanding of God’s saving grace.  This incredible grace flows from God’s great love for us.

Just as creeds such as the Apostles' Creed summarize the belief of all Christians, the Articles of Religion and the Confessions of Faith form a foundation of doctrine for United Methodists. They, along with Wesley's Sermons on Several Occasions and Explanatory Notes Upon the New Testament, are "standards" of doctrine for United Methodists.
