Our Mission

The mission of Columbia City United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

We will minister to over half of the people in Whitley County.


  • By offering a relationship with Jesus Christ
  • By making Christ relevant in daily life
  • By including people from all walks of life
  • By serving unmet needs both locally and globally
  • By advocating for social justice

As a United Methodist Church, we believe that Jesus Christ is real in our lives and that he has the power to transform our living. We know that God loves us as we are, and we believe we are called through Jesus to love God and each other for the betterment of the world.
