You are beautiful.


SCROLL DOWN

You are beautiful.


 

Let's start there because we all need to hear it, and for some of us, it's been a while since we've heard a church say it. You are beautiful, and much loved by God. We hope to meet you soon. If you decide to check us out, you'll find a diverse community with a shared commitment to do three things really well:

Practice Inclusion


Practice Inclusion


Unfortunately, church for many people has been a painful place of exclusion. At First Methodist Charlotte, we believe that God's family includes people of all races, ethnicities, national origins, gender identities, sexual orientations, social and economic statuses, mental and physical abilities, and those with and without homes.

Pursue Justice


Pursue Justice


Jesus said, "The last shall be first, and the first shall be last." In other words, no one is more important than another. Everyone deserves the same treatment and opportunity. To that end, we work for LGBTQ+ equality, racial healing and reconciliation, and adequate food and housing for the poor and the refugee.

Promote the Arts


Promote the Arts


Art is a human reflection of God's lavish creativity. When we make art, we "participate in the divine nature" (2 Pet. 1.4). We want to partner with local arts organizations to encourage the appreciation of beauty, wherever it's found: in a symphony performance, in a painting exhibition, or simply in the sights and sounds of our worship space.
