We Believe the church is...
...A place for Worship
On Sunday we gather primarily to focus our attention on God, offering our thanks and praise in song and prayer. We ponder God's word, receiving both blessing and inspiration, and are sent forth to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Church is not a building, it is the people.
We study the Bible because it informs our intellect and the better we understand its contents, the more it can guide us spiritually. We believe that the Bible is relevant and exploring it responsibly is a fruitful endeavor.
...a place for Enrichment
We offer programs and ministries for adults, youth, and children which include (but are not limited to): Theological discussion groups, reading groups, book studies, Bible studies, Mission and Outreach opportunities, youth retreats and camps, and Vacation Bible School.
...A Place for Friendship
Our opportunities for fellowship help the members of our church family discover new friends, some with the same outlook on life and some with a different outlook. We are people of different backgrounds, cultures, and interests who share a mutual respect for our differences and a genuine concern for each other's welfare. Let us include you in this family venture.
As the body of Christ in the world we accept our mission to be His hands and feet reaching out in service to others, be it in our neighborhoods or in other parts if the world. We join with United Methodists worldwide in service to our neighbors across the globe.
...not really a place
The Church is not a building or property, the Church is the body of Christ here in Palm Springs, throughout California, and to the ends of the earth.
