Our Values

We: First United Methodist Church of Escondido is a community of faith that seeks first the radically inclusive kin-dom of God. Being a people who have experienced God’s love and grace, we seek to embody this love and grace through our life together. All are welcome in our community.

Journey: We believe that the life of faith is just as much about the journey as the end. We believe God invites us to journey along the way of Jesus as we work for the healing of all persons and all creation.

Include: We believe that we are called to a life of infinite inclusivity in response to the unconditional reception we have received by God. We include across all boundaries and divisions that seek to keep us apart.

Love: We believe God is love. We believe God loves the world. We believe God’s love is without end. We believe that we are called to love. We believe we can love better when we are in community with others following the God who is love.

Connect: As a United Methodist Church, we are part of a global network of over 40,000 churches exploring what it means to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
