Welcome to Palm Coast UMC


United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians according to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline. We describe God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, though in referring to this threefold nature of God, sometimes the terms Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer are used.


God, The Creator

We believe in one God, who created the world and all that is in it; who is the sovereign ruler of the universe; and who is a loving God who extends his love and grace to us.


Jesus, the Redeemer

We believe that Jesus Christ was human, and who lived as a man and died when he was crucified; that Jesus is divine, and is the only Son of God.


Holy Spirit

God, The Sustainer

Being part of Palm Coast UMC means being part of a spiritual community that cares for one another and for the world around us. We come together to support each other, celebrate life's joys, and provide comfort during challenging times. Our church is a place where everyone is valued and embraced as part of God's family.
