Who are we?
White Bear Lake United Methodist Church is a community of people striving to walk in the path of Jesus. Though we are unified in our mission, we are diverse in our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. As a practice, we believe religion and faith is a dialogue, not a dictate. We invite you to explore our belief statements and hold them in conversation with us and with one another.
- We believe in teaching our children, youth, and adults to be critical thinkers and adventuresome followers who can ask big questions in church and get honest answers.
- We believe that Jesus is our primary pathway to God at the same time we respect other pathways to God.
- We believe in taking the Bible seriously but not literally.
- We believe God lives and moves among each one of us.
- We believe the kingdom of God is a present reality, not just a future one, and that we each have a role in contributing to its presence.
