Welcome Statement


Central United Methodist Church is a community for Christ in the center of the city.


We welcome everyone without exception, and we affirm that all individuals are persons of sacred worth.


We strive to follow the example of Christ, grow in love, and include into full fellowship persons of every race, age, gender, culture, nationality, creed, faith history, sexual orientation or gender identity, socioeconomic status, physical and mental ability, marital status, or family make up.


To fully experience this welcome, we encourage visitors and new members to become involved in a small group within the church, such as a Sunday School class or a journey group, Wednesday night study, ministry group, or a volunteer opportunity.

Apostles Creed


I believe in God the Father Almighty,

     maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:

     who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

     born of the Virgin Mary,

     suffered under Pontius Pilate,

     was crucified, dead, and buried;

     the third day he rose from the dead;

     he ascended into heaven,

     and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

     from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

     the holy catholic church,

     the communion of saints,

     the forgiveness of sins,

     the resurrection of the body,

     and the life everlasting. Amen
