What does it mean to be a United Methodist?

“What does it mean to be a United Methodist? What does it mean to be a member of First United Methodist Church?” It means a lot of different things to different people: tradition; vital faith that is never complacent; living life to make a difference; following Jesus in the 21st century; learning how to worship God; trying to see from God’s perspective; realizing that love is the goal. There is no single right answer. Faith is a little more complex than many think; after all, we are talking about God, right! But, if you are mildly curious about what it is like to seek God, to know God and to live for God, we invite you to visit your fellow-seekers at the corner of 6th and Laurel in Texarkana, Arkansas. Like all United Methodists, we are people of action- people who are seeking to live with “Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.” Come and see if it feels right to you!

Pastor, FUMC Texarkana, AR
