Don't be intimidated by brick and mortar
We understand attending a church for the first time can sometimes be uncomfortable and a little scary. Cokesbury desires to nurture everyone on their faith journey. Our friendly greeters are stationed around the church to lead you on tour and to help you find your community here. We desire for you to come and experience the hope, joy, and excitement of being apart of our community. And all are welcome here!
Cokesbury is part of the United Methodist denomination, the second-largest Protestant denomination in America, and we uphold our heritage and keeping with this tradition. As devoted followers of Jesus Christ, wholly surrendered to God, we strive to connect people to God as we grow in our faith and serve God together.
As a Faith Community, we strive for personal holiness and invite people into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe the Christian life goal is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor as you love yourself. We value passionate worship, biblical and relevant preaching, small groups to hold Christians accountable to one another as we generously serve those in need. We uphold the full participation of women and men, and people of all backgrounds in every facet of fellowship and leadership within the church.
As United Methodists, we share a common heritage with other Christians, holding to the Christian faith's historic essentials. We have a passionate faith with strong convictions and are "people of the Book," whose faith is firmly rooted in and built upon the scriptures. Cokesbury Church believes the Bible to be divinely inspired, and we are committed to living by its words. We recognize the Bible was written by people who heard God in the light of their own cultural and historical circumstances; this is our Cokesbury heritage. It shapes us in every area of ministry area to our community and the world.
"I love to encourage, to share the grace and love of God through preaching and teaching.” The scriptures have always been a huge part of my life and how I engage God’s beautiful people. The Bible teaches us the ways to love, serve, and abide by the timeless principles God sets before each of us." - Pastor Sheila
