WELCOME TO THE CONGREGATIONAL METHODIST CHURCH!

OUR HERITAGE

Once Methodism came to America, its message sparked an evangelical awakening. Summed up as "all men need to be saved, all men can be saved, all men can know they are saved, and all men can be saved to the uttermost," the message of Methodism resounded in the hearts of the early American people.


After its official founding at the Christmas conference of 1784, Methodism spread quickly, becoming the largest Protestant denomination in the country. As the country moved west, Methodism moved with it. It was said that with every wagon train going west, a Methodist circuit rider went with it.It was out of this revival that the Congregational Methodist Church came into existence in 1852.


Desiring to share the message of a heart-warming religion, and organize the people for discipleship, the founding fathers of the CMC exercised their faith and formed a doctrine based on the beliefs and teachings of John Wesley, yet with the spirit of American liberty.

OUR POSITION

Congregational Methodists are conservative, evangelical Christians in the Wesleyan Arminian tradition.


Our faith is grounded in the infallible, inerrant, inspired Word of God.


We believe that the scriptures are God's revelation of Himself to us, as well as the rule of faith, containing all the truth necessary for faith and Christian living.


We believe that God has revealed Himself in three distinct persons... the Father, the source of all life; the Son, the mediator of God's life; and the Spirit, the extension of God's life to us. This 3-in-1 God has made us for fellowship with Himself.


We believe that Christians are meant to be an active part of the body of Christ. The Church is where encouragement, spiritual growth, and the development of spiritual gifts occur.


The Church purpose is also for equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry. Our community, our nation, even our world, is our responsibility. As John Wesley stated, "I consider all the world as my parish." The Church, therefore, is to be the physical manifestation of Jesus to its community and world. This is accomplished by the indwelling Spirit empowering the saints to continue the ministry and publish the message of Jesus.

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Congregational Methodist Church is as changeless as the heart of God, and that has never changed.


God has always loved us. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) It is still the desire of God that all should come to salvation in Jesus Christ.


This verse in 2 Peter 3:9 shows that the purpose of God is immutable. "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."


Because of these treasured beginnings and the immutability of God, the Congregational Methodist Church is a 'message driven' organization that is dedicated to proclaiming and preserving the Gospel of Jesus Christ across continents, cultures and centuries.
