What We Believe
The United Methodist Church shares a great deal with other denominations. Explore what we believe about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and more.
We also have a unique heritage and areas of emphasis. Learn what we mean when we talk about grace, how we serve people around the world, and ways we grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Who is Our Pastor?
Rev. Cydney Idsigna

Pastor Cyd received her Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2014 culminating her journey from brokenness to physical and spiritual healing. In 1998 she was nearly killed in a car accident that resulted in a closed head injury that took much of her vision. Her physical healing required over twenty surgeries and several miracles to keep her alive.
In her words, “Surviving meant God had a plan for me. I spent the next few years immersed in all things God, music, books, sermons, the Bible. I couldn’t get enough. I was listening to a sermon one day whenthe Lord showed me that I had been being prepared all my life to be a pastor. In that moment all my experiences, trials, gifts and graces, made sense. My world began to fall in place when I realized God’s plan for me. I have a life I cherish now. My prayers are no longer filled with bitter tears. My prayers are now a conversation with my dearest friend; my Lord; my Savior. When I say, “Savior” I mean, God really saved me!”
Pastor Cyd has a passion for sharing the Gospel. She would love to hear about your story and share wit you what she has learned about an amazing, Spirit filled life with Christ. She can be contacted at 231-873-3516.
Who are United Methodists?
The United Methodist Church is a global denomination that opens hearts, opens minds and opens doors through active engagement with our world. The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
A United Methodist is someone who joins in that mission by putting faith and love into action. We believe that God loves all people, and that we share in expressing that love. So the United Methodist tradition emphasizes God’s grace and in serving others. We believe that Jesus Christ is the fullest expression of God’s love–showing us the fullness of God’s care through Jesus’ teachings, death and resurrection.
John Wesley started the Methodist movement in 18th century England. His teachings on practical divinity (living out our faith) and appeals to reason and experience form important aspects of United Methodist practice today.
