What We Believe

Welcome to Florence United Methodist Church where we are a congregation of open hearts, open minds, and open doors to people from all backgrounds of life.

What visitors usually notice first is that the people here at Florence UMC are a very welcoming group of folks. I think you will notice very quickly that Florence UMC is not a closed community, but very open to new persons. Second, I think you will find Florence UMC a church where our focus is on having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and living a life of integrity.

At Florence UMC, we are striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible in Acts 2:42-47 – a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need. We’d like to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can influence and encourage the entire community, one life at a time.

So whether you are a seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God or a committed Christian who wants to take your faith even deeper, you can find a church at Florence UMC. We are thankful for our past here at Florence UMC, but we look forward to our future with faith in our hearts because we know God is going to richly bless us. Come and find that this is a place where you really matter because you matter to God.
