Our Mission and Values

Our Mission

St. Mark’s UMC exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and our community.

We seek to do this through encountering God, following Christ, and changing lives.

Our goal is to love God with all we are and to love others in response to God’s love for us.


We Believe:

  • that God loves each of us, unconditionally, no matter what we’ve done.

  • that God invites each of us to enter into relationship with our Creator.

  • that God changes us, transforms us into our best selves, when we allow God to work in our lives.

  • in the power of prayer, the study of scripture, the importance of worship, and the usefulness of all the spiritual disciplines in drawing us closer to God.

  • our faith must be lived out in our everyday lives.

  • that everyone has gifts, talents, skills, abilities, and experiences that can help others.

St. Mark’s is a place where you can:

  • be yourself.

  • ask tough questions and get honest answers.

  • meet new friends and build authentic relationships

  • grow spiritually and relationally.

  • make a difference in your community and in your world.
