As a United Methodist congregation, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

 
Chelsea First United Methodist Church's Core Values
  • Love:  We love our neighbors in and beyond Chelsea, following the example of Jesus Christ.
  • Faith:  We trust in God's goodness and seek to understand it deeply through spiritual practices and study.
  • Prayer:  We encourage many expressions of prayer that draw us closer to God.
  • Justice:  Given the reality of oppression, and with a hopeful vision of the Kingdom of God, we promote respect and fairness for all in our church and in our society.
