Building Godly Relationships
Transforming Lives with the Love of Jesus Christ
FUMC is a community where we strive to make disciples of Jesus Christ equipped to transform our community with excellence and passion. A community of faith exists for the purpose of worship. No matter the style, worship is our personal and corporate response to God’s sovereignty and blessings in our lives. There are many different opportunities for you to enter into the presence of God at FUMC Arkadelphia throughout the week. Please join us!
United Methodists are part of the larger Christian faith and affirm all of the historic beliefs of the faith as articulated in the historic creeds of the church. We affirm the God of Israel who has been decisively revealed in Jesus of Nazareth and continues to be present and at work in our lives in the form of the Holy Spirit. This understanding of God is known as the Trinity. We believe that God has been revealed through the Bible, and especially through the witness of the New Testament
