Just as the Christian faith is about bringing life to the world, Asbury First is about bringing life to this community. We believe the only way to the fullness of life promised by Jesus Christ is through love—love of God and love of neighbor.Our Mission: Love God and neighbor. Live fully. Serve all. Repeat.Reconciling Statement: All are invited. A reconciling statement welcoming all to Asbury First, including LGBTQ individuals, was overwhelmingly approved by the congregation in 2015. It reads as follows: "Asbury First United Methodist Church prayerfully strives to live with open hearts, open minds and open doors. We welcome full participation of all, regardless of age, race, national origin, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status or family structure, education or economic background and physical or mental ability. Let us journey together in faith toward greater understanding and mutual respect."
