Thank you for your interest in Belleville First United Methodist Church. We hope you will feel comfortable and welcome in our midst. We recognize that there are many who are hurting and feeling unaccepted, who are longing for a place to rest and feel love. Others may have fallen away from the church and are looking for a place to plug back in. Or, maybe, you just really don't know what this church thing is all about and are a bit skeptical of walking into a building with stained glass windows.

At Belleville First United Methodist Church, we affirm the inherent worth of all people because we are made in the image of God (Galatians 3:28). We recognize that each person has a story of their own and we welcome the diverse perspectives that each person brings to the table.

The United Methodist Church is a worldwide connection of approximately 10 million members in Africa, Asia, Europe and the US. Globally we are a church that is working to spread the gospel, include all persons, and where you're not expected to think like everyone else. We believe Christian unity binds us together despite our differences. As we come to understand our differences, we strive to keep foremost in our mind that we all share the most beautiful gift ever given: A Father who loves each of us so much that He sent His son to live amongst us, to teach us His way, and through acceptance of Him into our hearts and lives, we can live with Him forever.

We strive together in fellowship with other believers and as individuals to become more like Christ. We seek to represent Christ well to our wider community and accept all believers from other denominations since we are all one body. (I Corinthians 12:12, Romans 12:5)

We desire to show God's love for others through outreach by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of people in the local area and in the world as we are able.

We hope you will join us in moving forward in Christ Together!
