We Are All God's Children
Saxapahaw United Methodist Church welcomes and embraces people from all walks of life. The richness of our diversity is evident as we worship the One God revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We follow the teachings of the United Methodist Church, interpreting them within our own context. With John Wesley (the founder of the Methodist movement), we believe that the world is our parish. To that end our ministries extend beyond the doors of the church, into the community, and across the world.
We also believe, as Methodists, that we are constantly growing in our faith. To this end, we offer a wide variety of opportunities for people of all ages to learn and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
