Are We Part of a Denomination? 

We are a member of the United Methodist Church (UMC).  The UMC is worldwide body united by doctrine, discipline, and mission.  This means that we believe we can do more together than we can separately.  As a result we are “connectional” in nature rather than independent churches.  We celebrate diversity and debate within the bounds of a common covenant to live by biblical standards mutually agreed upon and written down in our Book of Discipline.  This allows us to have a standard “method” for church organization, structure, discipline, and authority that is based on the Bible.
