About Us

Who we are

Karen Allen & Nicole OjaFaith United Methodist Church is an inter-generational Christian community committed to Jesus Christ. We primarily serve the communities of northeast Minneapolis, St. Anthony and New Brighton, yet members come from many parts of the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities. We're a church that's large enough to offer our members lots of programs and opportunities to serve, yet small enough so that we can really get to know each other.  We are a loving, supportive church where you are known by name and nurtured in your spiritual journey.

Our mission

Our mission is to help people develop and share their faith. We do this by affirming all persons as valued children of God, inviting people to experience a caring community, nurturing spiritual growth and renewal, responding to the human need for dignity, peace, and justice, and extending the church by sending and supporting persons to serve and minister.

We're a reconciling congregation

Faith United Methodist Church believes that we are all children of God, created by God with our many differences, and that all are welcome at God’s table. We recognize that God’s love is not limited by the boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical capability or mental ability.

We believe that prejudice, hatred, or discrimination directed toward any individual or group is contrary to the life and spirit of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we shall work to eliminate prejudice and discriminatory practices within ourselves and our community, and to show grace, in Jesus’ name. We proclaim ourselves a reconciling ministry and welcome all who seek a relationship with God.

A military-friendly church

We welcome members of the military and their families. Our congregation includes several young people deployed in our military services, and we have three Blue Star Mothers among our members.

The importance of getting involved

We have many small groups formed around various topics, service projects, and occasions for offering support and making new friends. Within these groups you will be able to experience a renewed sense of belonging and the challenge of engaging with other seekers in the search for meaning, truth and fulfillment.
