who We Are

Our Mission


The First United Methodist Church of Eugene is a Reconciling Congregation.  As followers of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, we affirm that all people are created in the image of God, are beloved children of God, and are worthy of God’s grace.  In accord with the ministry of John Wesley, we hold to a vision of an inclusive church that welcomes people of diverse faith journeys, beliefs, and opinions in a loving and caring community.  All persons of any sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, age, race, ethnicity, mental or physical ability, and economic situation are welcome to attend, join, and participate fully in the life of our faith community as sisters and brothers in Christ.
