BUMC Vision Statement

We believe that our collective journey of faith is intended to create lives of lives of passion and purpose, and envision our congregation's future as one of increasing promise: inclusive,
vibrant, growing, intellectually honest, spiritually rich and driven
by the joy of sharing God's grace with others.

We embrace an emerging Christianity that invites questioning and contemplation, focuses less on dogma and doctrine and more on compassion and love, and promotes practices of faith and service which will transform both us and our community.

Core Beliefs

Social principles of the United Methodist Church

Foundations of our Faith
Guided by God's unconditional love, we see all people as children of a single Creator, our brothers and sisters in spirit.

Inspired by the unconditional hospitality of Jesus, we believe that our congregation is called to welcome all into its circle of caring.

Rejoicing in our God-given intelligence, creativity and free will, we celebrate these gifts through study, contemplation and action.

Keeping faith with the message of Jesus, we see it as our mission to act with compassion,
to work for peace
and justice, and to share the joy of Christian community.

Fruits of the Spirit

Our congregation...
...is on a faith journey. We don't pretend to have all the answers, but strongly support an attitude of questioning and seeking. As we pursue our path toward relationship with God, we grow in faith and celebrate the divine spark that lives within all people.

...isn't wrapped up in religious dogma. Our beliefs and actions center on what Jesus described as the most important commandment, "to love God and one another."

...is proudly progressive. We believe that no single religious tradition has a monopoly on the truth, and accept that all enduring religions have gained insight into the human condition and sought connection with our Creator.

...is intentionally inclusive. We value diversity, and believe that the unique gifts of each individual add to the richness of the whole while strengthening our oneness in spirit.

...thinks beyond the box. As Methodists, we follow the example of John Wesley, who believed there was no religion but social religion, no holiness but social holiness. In other words, our faith always includes a social dimension. We can't just take care of ourselves and our own congregation or denomination, but must put our faith and love into practice by helping others.

...passionately supports service ministries. Because of all God has given us, we feel called to help ease the hurting of humanity by reaching out to those in need with love, help, hope and peace - serving as God's hands and feet in the world.

...values the gifts of intelligence and free will. We believe that the wisdom of Jesus' teachings calls us to look inside ourselves and struggle with who we are and why we're here, and we strive to create an environment that fosters learning, sharing and growth.

...supports religious literacy. As "a caring church for thinking people," we believe that the study of the Bible, its related historical and religious texts, and new contributions to theological thinking are important opportunities to better understand our religious heritage.

...respects diversity of thought. We don't all agree on everything, but Methodism is "a big tent" and we make it a practice to agree to respectfully disagree.

...promises to live its faith on a daily basis. We commit not to be just "Sunday Christians," but to order all the days of our lives in ways that embody the example of Jesus - in our families, workplaces, communities and the wider world.

...believes that community matters. We strive to surround each member of our congregation with a nurturing community that enriches them in good times, supports them through struggle and continues to help them grow in faith, hope and love.

Our hearts, our minds and our doors
always are open to all who would care
to become part of this family of faith.
