About Us

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, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20

First United Methodist Church is

A gathering place for Christians and seekers.  We are a group of people who believe that ALL – and we mean ALL, people matter to God.  We are an imperfect people who are constantly inviting imperfect people to join us as we worship a PERFECT GOD!

We are more than an amazing collection of individuals who gather on Sunday morning, we are a growing family.  We are not a perfect family, but we are a family that strives to love, forgive, and serve.  We are a family who is always creating space for another person around God’s table.  We are bounded together by God’s love for us and by God’s commandment for us to love others.

Our Mission

We take seriously our privilege of serving as salt and light in the world. We embrace with open hearts, open minds, and open hands our responsibility to serve others the way Jesus served.

Our Vision

We believe that God intends to use First United Methodist Church of Fort Pierce to demonstrate that love really does conquer every evil that has manifested itself in today’s society. We intend to do this by diligently and strategically emphasizing the message that ALL people matter to God. We intend to be a church where people from all walks of life immediately have a sense of welcome and belonging when they join us for worship. For many people attending First United Methodist Church of Fort Pierce this will be their first experience of being in a place where they are truly seen, heard, and understood. We stand boldly by our charge to lead people to live in the world not as broken, hurting, discouraged people, but to live as beloved sons and daughters of God. We intend to help people see themselves not as they currently are, but to see themselves the way God intends for them to be seen – AS MASTERPIECES.

Our Values

That the fullness of God’s love and power for God’s creation was revealed through Jesus Christ. If you want to know who God is, what God thinks and feels, how God acts, we believe that is revealed in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs

ALL people matter to God. God will never give up on us. God is active in the world today. God expects people to experience life with love, joy, and peace.
