What We Believe


GOD is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has elemally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equals and one GOD. Genesis 1:1 Deuteronomy 6:4. The Father is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. He reigns with providential care over the universe, and the flow of human history goes according to His purposes and plan. Psalm 19:1-3 Jeremiah 10:10; 1 Timothy 1:17



Built in 1869 Laurel Creek Methodist Episcopal Church had her humble beginnings under a brush arbor in Laurel Creek community near the flowing waters of Laurel Creek.  A former slave, the Reverend James R. Rosemond has been credited as the traveling pastor who organized this church in 1869 along with many other Methodist Churches during the Reconstruction period.  Laurel Creek became Laurel Creek United Methodist Church in 1968.

Over a century has passed since our humble beginnings.  The physical building has changed, but the vision is the same.  Through continued prayer and faith in God, we remain focused on living our lives in a manner that is pleasing to God.
