We are a United Methodist congregation who holds fast to the teachings of The United Methodist Church. We believe in the God who created the world and all that is in it. We believe that Jesus being both fully human and fully divine is the incarnate embodiment of the fullest expression of God’s love alive in the world. We believe that the Holy Spirit guides us and empowers us along the way that leads to life. We believe in the Triune God recognized as: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and hold fast to the teachings of both the Old and New Testaments. The gift of God’s Grace is center in our life and teaching. We believe that the life, death, and
resurrection of Jesus reconciles us to God, each other, and all of creation.
Our life together is ordered around the living of the Kingdom of God realities, so that we might be partnered with God in rising Heaven all around us here on the earth.
Our purpose as members of the Killian Pines United Methodist Church is to nurture, support, and sustain ALL persons in their search for a closer relationship with God and His Son, Jesus Christ. We are a fellowship of believers who are working in the service of God with our goal to provide a setting wherein each person will be accepted, receive encouragement, hear the Good News and live it, enjoy fellowship with one another, learn to share his/her gifts (talents), experience faith in action, and know that she/he is a beloved member of the Family of God.
Through our daily life and action we seek to be witnesses for Jesus Christ by our regular attendance and sharing our time, talent, and treasures. We want to strive always to carry out the work of Christ in our community by reaching everyone in all corners of the world.
