About Our ChurchWe of Ridge United Methodist Church are united with Jesus Christ in His ministry of compassion for all people by offering HOPE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and MEANING FOR LIFE.
Our Mission & Vision
Our vision and mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
“Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors.”
Through the United Methodist Church, all people are invited to experience God’s grace and grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living—in other words, putting faith and love into action. John Wesley referred to this as “practical divinity.” Grace, defined as the love and mercy given to us by God because God wants us to have it, is central to the United Methodist understanding of Christian faith and life.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—not the results of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
