What We Believe

Alpharetta First United Methodist Church is a diverse community of believers who are part of the United Methodist Church. Historically, Methodists are known for our emphasis on a personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We share the love of God by caring for one another, serving in our community and around the world. We value well-informed and passionate preaching and lively worship, and small groups where people can grow in faith.

Our Mission

The mission of Alpharetta Methodist, “…to win men and women, boys and girls to Jesus Christ,” is based on the Great Commission. This personal directive was given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to his disciples in Matthew 28:18-20:

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Our Vision

We strive “to be a diverse community that invites and welcomes all people to experience a loving relationship with Jesus Christ that will transform lives.
