Our Mission Statement

Buena Vista United Methodist Church is a welcoming, multi-generational community of faith open to all. Our mission is to be a spiritual and healing place for individuals to develop and deepen a growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ; nurture loving ties within the congregation that embraces family, heritage, and diversity; live out our Christian faith to our local and global communities through prayer, service, and social justice.

We Believe:

  • God’s hope, love, justice and healing are embodied in the life of Jesus.
  • Our faith, deepened and shared through life’s experiences, guides us.
  • Within each person and all of creation, God can be known through many traditions.
  • God calls us to welcome all people on their journey of faith regardless of age, abilities, physical condition, race, gender, sexual orientation or socio-economic class.
  • God works in human history and in the unique experiences of oppressed communities. God continues to call forth new roles for the ministry of Buena Vista UMC as we encounter new realities and reflect upon our Japanese American historical roots.
  • As a prophetic voice for justice, we will be an example and influence in our local and global community.

Buena Vista is a multi-cultural and multi-generational community of faith.
