About Us

We believe in the goodness and love of God toward all humanity and nature.  We believe that God has created us to think, dream, and grow in our faith.  We are committed to share God’s love with our neighbors regardless of their religion, nationality, economic status, or minority status. Each of us has a need and a responsibility to make a positive difference in the world.

Our mission at First United Methodist Church of Tahlequah is to share God’s love and bring hope to the world. We accomplish our mission by sharing the message of Christ and in growing our faith as we serve the community.  

Everyone is welcome.  Come as you are.
