God's Love in Action
Calvary UMC in Dumont, NJ
Our Global Church
The United Methodist Church shares a common heritage with all Christians, but we are especially known as a denomination deeply and actively involved with people’s lives, with political and social struggles, and international missions. Everything we do is an expression of the personal change we have experienced in our own spiritual journey and discipleship as followers of Jesus Christ.
It’s difficult to describe God, and we may have trouble relating to God, but we can understand God’s nature, and put into words how we experience God’s action in our lives. How do we do this? Simply remember Jesus—for in the New Testament picture of Jesus, we see God.
