Our Vision

We care about people because God cares about people.  God desires for His children to experience abundant life in Him.  Our vision is to engage, encourage, equip and expand our community to experience this life each and every day through the love and encouragement of Christ.  We believe that we can't do life alone, that growing people change, that saved people serve people, and that found people find people.


As we continue to invest resources into reaching people in Belvidere, the surrounding area & beyond, we pray that First United Methodist Church can make a Kingdom impact at a global & local level
