Who We are

We have a loving God. He is transforming us into a loving people so that the world may know and understand who He is.  We invite you to come and experience the transforming love of God with us. We are a United Methodist community of faith.  

The purpose of LaPorte United Methodist Church is to express our love for God through: 

  • Glorifying worship, 
  • Introducing people to Jesus and his life-changing power, 
  • Encouraging Christian growth, and
  • Loving service to the world.                                                                                                  

"Growing God's family through loving community, passionate worship, and life-changing discipleship"

what we believe

Jesus Christ is God's Son, given to us so that we can be saved through faith in him. By his birth into our world, he showed us the love of God. By his death he purchased our salvation. By his resurrection, he enables us to live abundantly with him, now and forever. By his gift of the Holy Spirit we are empowered to live for God in holiness, righteousness, and giving ourselves for others.

LaPorte Church stands squarely within the evangelical tradition of the church. We believe the Holy Bible to be God's full and final revelation of Himself and His plan for the world. We find the Bible to be fully sufficient for guidance in every matter of faith and practice.
