We are a church striving to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We seek to be both multi-generational and ethnically diverse as a representation of our community and the diversity and variety in the Kingdom of God.
We began in 1959 and celebrated 60 years of faithful and fruitful ministry in 2019.
Our location on Old Troy Pike was possible through the generosity of the Booher family and a deal struck with Charles Huber during the initial development of Huber Heights.
We hold many of our beliefs in common with other Christians while others are special emphases of our tradition as United Methodist Christians who count John Wesley as our spiritual father:
Triune God - God is one God in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost).
Scripture - The writings in the Old Testament and New Testament are the inspired word of God.
Sin - While human beings were intended to bear the image of God, all humans are sinners for whom that image is distorted. Sin estranges us from God and corrupts human nature such that we cannot heal or save ourselves.
Salvation through Jesus Christ - God's redeeming love is active to save sinners through Jesus' incarnate life and teachings, through his atoning death, his resurrection, his sovereign presence through history, and his promised return.
Sacraments - We recognize two sacraments: Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. In Holy Baptism, the Church believes that "Baptism is not only a sign of profession and mark of difference whereby Christians are distinguished from others that are not baptized; but it is also a sign of regeneration or the new birth." It believes that Baptism is a sacrament in which God initiates a covenant with individuals, people become a part of the Church, is not to be repeated, and is a means of grace.
The United Methodist Church generally practices Baptism by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion and recognizes Trinitarian formula baptisms from other Christian denominations in good standing. The United Methodist Church affirms the real presence of Christ in Holy Communion, (the bread is an effectual sign of His body crucified on the cross and the cup is an effectual sign of His blood shed for humanity), anamnesis of Jesus' death, believes the sacrament to be a means of grace, and practices open communion.
Free will - The UMC believes that people, while corrupted by sin, are free to make their own choices because of God's divine grace.
Grace - The UMC believes that God gives unmerited favor freely to all people, though it may be resisted.
