Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church

Established in 1871, Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church has had a standing commitment to spreading the word of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission Statement

To be disciples of Jesus Christs so all may know;    to educate, to grow and empower to serve.

What We Believe

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

The United Methodist Church is an 11-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors and opens minds through active engagement with our world.

John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as “practical divinity” has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

We invite you to learn more about our rich theological heritage.
