The mission of First United Methodist Church of Golden is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name
of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is “Loving Christians, Growing in Spirit, Acting in Faith.”
We seek to build disciples through worship, study and service. Wesley’s Quadrilateral- Scripture, Tradition, Experience, and Reason- leads us in the nurturing of our relationship with a triune God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! Wesley believed that Scripture reveals the living core of Christian faith- which is illumined by tradition, enlivened by experience, and confirmed by reason.
