Our Beliefs

We belong to the United Methodist Church, founded in 1968, whose mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The United Methodist Church shares basic affirmations in common with many Christian communities; what makes us unique is the Methodist part, derived from our founder John Wesley.

While we share common threads of history and beliefs with other Methodist churches, we celebrate the wide variety and diversity of theology as it get expressed uniquely in local communities.


We proudly support our friends in the LGBTIQA community by being a reconciling church. As we are taught in the bible, love our neighbors, we show our love to people from all walks of life.

Also, in other exciting news, the Western District of the Methodist Church elected Rev. Karen Oliveto, the first openly gay bishop on July 15th, 2016!

We Are Browns Point

United Methodist Church

Wherever you are in your journey of faith, you are welcome here. We seek to be a house of prayer for all people, where we worship God and proclaim the reconciling Gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to be transformed by the love of Jesus Christ and share that abundantly with other.

  • We believe each person is wonderfully made as a beloved child of God.
  • We seek to make our church a place of hospitality for everyone in our diverse community. 
  • We serve those in need as we work together for justice and mercy.
  • We strive to be good stewards of the earth.
  • We are a reconciling congregation, which means our hearts, minds and doors are always open to people of all ages, abilities, races, nationalities, sexual orientations, gender identities, economic and marital status.


Baptism is our welcome into the family of Christ and celebrate the grace of God freely offered to us before we were even aware of it. Baptism may occur at any age and uses water as symbolic of God's love, necessary for all of life.

Holy Communion is the symbolic meal of bread (ours is gluten-free and hand baked) and drink (grape juice) shared by the family of Christ to nourish and sustain us as followers of Christ. Our practice is what is known as "open" communion, where people of all ages and church affiliations are welcome. It is done once a month as a celebration of our life together as the living body of Christ in and for our world.
