What We Believe

Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open DoorsVista Vision

Our Vision is to be a community of God’s grace, living the mission of Christ. We believe that we should treat others as we would want them to treat us.

Vista Mission

Our Mission is to celebrate a reverence for life and a sense of wonder as we enthusiastically engage the challenges life has to offer. It is to reach out to others to help them meet their needs and to welcome them into our family of faith as we gather for worship, fellowship, education, and service.

Vista Motto

“Once a Missile Site…Now a Church with a Mission.”
Welcome to Vista de la Montana United Methodist Church. We hope you will discover just how much God loves you and that God has a wonderful plan and purpose for your life. We strive to be a church which is open and welcoming.
You will find that children, youth, young adults, and mature adults are all important to us. We offer opportunities to help meet your spiritual needs and to be supportive of you and your family. We join in a shared ministry between clergy and laity, encouraging people to use their gifts in ministry to help others. Our missions are a vital part of who we are and we work together to make a difference in the world.
In a world full of strife and conflict about religions, we believe we have something to special to offer. It is the chance to have a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ. If you already know Jesus on a personal basis, we are here to help you grow in your relationship as you fellowship with other believers and to find your place in ministry. If you do not know Jesus, we are here to help you get to know Him. As the apostle Paul said, “He will never disappoint you.”

Our Wesleyan Heritage

We are proud to be part of The United Methodist Church. United Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We are evangelical, but are moderates rather than fundamentalists. We value the intellect and modern science, while at the same time look to the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists have a passionate faith with strong convictions, but we also recognize that the issues we face in our world are not always clear cut. Therefore, we are willing to ask questions and wrestle with difficult issues and strive to do so with the grace and compassion of Christ.
Methodists are known for our emphasis on a personal faith lived out in concrete ways in the world. Historically we value well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that is lively, and small groups where people are given the opportunity to grow in their faith. Methodists strive for open hearts and open minds. We welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith. United Methodists are the second largest Protestant denomination in America, and Methodists have played a significant role in shaping our nation.
