What we are about
igniting a passion to follow jesus
We believe the church belongs to God and that the church is, in the words of the Apostle Paul, the body of Christ. The church is to be the physical presence of Christ in the world. As such, our primary aim is to do God’s will. We invite you to contact us.

What is a United Methodist?
United Methodists are the second largest Protestant denomination in America. We are the home to both President Bush, and President Clinton’s family while they were in the White House. Methodists have played a significant role in shaping our nation and especially the Augusta area. The formation of Augusta Urban Ministries, the presence United Methodist Children’s Home services in downtown Augusta and many colleges and universities including Paine College, founded in 1882.
what we believe
Historic Doctrines of the Christian Faith.
United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are evangelical, but moderates rather than fundamentalists. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time looking to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion.
“Trinity” comes from the Latin noun “trinitas” meaning “three are one.” The Trinity expresses the belief that God is one Being made up of three distinct Persons who exist in co-equal essence and co-eternal communion as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Christians are part of a universal church and must work with all Christians to spread the love of God. If you are interested in learning about God’s love for you please consider contacting our pastor here and coming to a service.
