THE VISION OF CARMEL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH IS......

CONNECTING with God and others, GROWING in faith and love through Bibical learning, and SERVING our community and world as followers of Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE THAT MINISTRY IS......

the church's response is to "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son ad of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commaned you. ANd surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."   

Matthew 29:19-20

WE EXIST FOR 3 REASONS.....

           that we feel very strongly about. We believe that focusingon CONNECTING, GROWING and SERVING are the three things that God calls for us to do. We trust in the Lord and follow his will. 


The Bible is the blueprint on how we should live our lives. We strongly believe that if we follow the Word that we will grow stronger as a community, and close to God. We rely heavily on what the Bible says so that we may not stray away from the path that God has set before us.

As long as we love one another we will grow stronger as a community of believers. We feel that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool that God calls for us to do as often as possible. Grow Groups and Bible Studies are some of the best ways for you to connect with others and grow in your relationship with God here at Carmel UMC. 

We are called to serve with our passions and talents. You can serve in the church,  in our local community, natiionally and globally.  See which is right for you!
