St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our church's vision is to:

S e r v e t h e W o r l d
C O R E V A L U E S
G o d
God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.
J e s u s
We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus whose life, death, and resurrection demonstrate God's redeeming love.
T h e H o l y S p i r i t
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.
H u m a n B e i n g s
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.
T h e C h u r c h
The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ's life and ministry in the world.
T h e B i b l e
We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.
G o d ' s R e i g n
The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
