Vision, Purpose & Identity

About Us / Our Vision, Purpose & Identity At WUMC


To live so that others will become disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.


To be people who provide opportunities for community worship, spiritual growth and missionary service.


United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time look to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. As Methodists our passionate faith is advanced by strong convictions. Yet, we also recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions, to wrestle with difficult issues, and to do so with grace and compassion. At Westlake United Methodist Church, we welcome people of all ages, races, social and economic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities. Our emphasis has been on personal faith, lived out in the world with direction and purpose.
