About Maize Manor UMC

Maize Manor United Methodist Church (UMC) is a growing congregation in the North Linden community.

Our vision is to be a community church, where people of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs come together to learn to LIVE LIKE JESUS. 

Our Christian Beliefs

God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death and resurrection demonstrate God’s redeeming love.

The Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst. When we sense God’s leading, God’s challenge, or God’s support or comfort, it’s the Holy Spirit at work.

The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.

We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
