We have new mission and vision statements at Birmingham UMC!

Our mission is to build a community where people who have a church home, and people who do not, are becoming deeply rooted Christian disciples. 

Our vision is to plant, grow, and spread ministries that heal and transform our world.

This vision is expressed by five branches of a tree which reflect how the church will be focused in the future. These five branches of ministry are:

Branch 2 Feed.jpg

Worship, both corporate and personal, exposes us to God’s grace, feeds our souls, and nourishes our relationships with God, neighbor and self.
Worship is also the ground from which all other ministry germinates.

Branch 2 Shade.jpg

Our heal ministries seek to help people experience wholeness and wellness in all facets of life, providing a canopy of comfort to hurting people through counseling, prayer, and presence.

Branch 2 Grow.jpg

Our disciple ministries seek to help people grow
to become more like Christ.
As we study the Bible, fellowship, pray, and act on what we have learned about Jesus, we are transformed by God’s grace into the Christ-like person God wants us to be.

Branch 2 Plant.jpg

Our reach ministries seek to sow seeds of faith, hope, and love
to welcome people to Christian faith and to the church. Motivated by our belief that Jesus is the source of love, forgiveness, and salvation for everyone, and that God wants the whole world to know this, we point people to Jesus Christ through words and acts which reflect God’s love.

Branch 2 Spread.jpg

Our serve ministries spread God’s love to the world
through acts of mission and service. Ministries like delivering day old bread to a local shelter, contributing funds to the United Methodist Children’s home, and going on a trip to minister in a foreign country are ways we visibly embody God’s love and grace through acts of sacrificial service which benefit others. 


Who are we at Birmingham UMC?

We are five branches of ministry empowered by God's Spirit to heal and transform our world.
