Heart of Longmont is a United Methodist congregation where Faith and Reason are compatible.
The Heart of Longmont welcomes every person and recognizes each as a unique and sacred child of God. You have a place here regardless of age, race, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
As United Methodists, we share a common heritage with all Christians. Our denomination was founded by John Wesley in 1700s Britain.
You might wonder what we believe about different topics. This is what we believe about:
God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.
Genesis 1:27 asserts that we’ve been made in the image of the Creator. Like God we have the capacity to love and care, to communicate, and to create.
The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrate God’s redeeming love.
The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.
In the Sacrament of Holy Baptism “we are initiated into Christ’s holy church, … incorporated into God’s mighty acts of salvation and given new birth through water and the Spirit…All this is God’s gift, offered to us without price.”
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst. When we sense God’s leading, God’s challenge, or God’s support or comfort, it’s the Holy Spirit at work.
We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
We believe and practice “Open Communion” which means you do not need to be a member to receive communion, but it is for those who ‘love Christ, earnestly repent of their sin, and seek to be at peace with one another.
Our Mission: Putting More of God's Love Into The World
Helping all persons find deeper meaning and God’s purpose for their lives as committed Christ-followers.
Serving as the Heart of Longmont means:
We will welcome all persons, without reservation or judgment, just as Jesus Christ would do.
We will work tirelessly by entering into intentional acts of compassion and social justice to make our community a place where God’s love is known by all, where poverty and deprivation are unknown by any, and where respect for the worth and dignity of each person is the norm.
We will respect and honor other religious traditions while choosing Christ as our way of knowing God best.
We will emphasize life-long learning so that we may engage our world from a dynamic and creative perspective.
We will work to protect God’s creation.
We will practice stewardship of all aspects of our lives, including time, talent, financial resources, and spiritual gifts.
