About Us

Our Mission

The mission of Auburn United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We do this by offering Christ, nurturing others and serving all.


We exist to offer Jesus and show God’s grace, love and mercy to all. We seek to share the love of Christ by proclaiming Jesus as our Lord and ourselves as His servants.


We strive to nurture and encourage each other to grow in God’s grace. We invite all to take the next steps in their faith journey with us as we become better disciples.


We desire to serve all and live out the good news of God’s love for the world. We believe in embodying the hands & feet of Jesus, both locally and abroad.


We desire to see our members transformed by the body of Christ and in growing as disciples. Our ultimate mission is to see our members offer Christ, nurture others and serve all.

What We Believe

We are excited to share with you what we believe about our God who we know as loving, forgiving, saving and redeeming through his Son, Jesus Christ. We feel our beliefs about the Good News of Jesus Christ are best communicated through the Apostles’ Creed, which can be found below.


I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
