Pastor Greg Buchner


What Pastor Greg Believes


Pastor Greg Buchner (pronounced boo-K’-ner) is a disciple and follower of Jesus Christ, created by God the Father, sustained by the Holy Spirit, to love God and love others.


Wesleyan in belief, Pastor Greg believes that the Holy Spirit is not finished with any of us yet. Since we carry the name of Christian, by God’s grace, everything the Bible says about Jesus Christ is what we should strive to be. We’re not perfect yet, but we continue to work towards God’s holy truth that will one day set us free. Jesus said so, and John, Charles, and Susanna Wesley lived their faith in an honest, down-to-earth, and helpful expression of grace and love.


Methodist in practice, Pastor Greg believes in grace and love tempered with holiness.

Our minds, hearts, and hands have to go together. More and more, as we become like Christ, loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving and serving others as we’d like to be, has to be our goal. And when we miss that mark, forgiveness, grace, and mercy should be our specialty, both to those inside and outside of our churches and community. God has first forgiven and loved us to show us how.
