Crestview United Methodist Church is a scripture-based church and believes that scripture should be interpreted through tradition, reason, and experience.  Any single scriptural passage should be interpreted in the context of the overarching story of God’s grace revealed in Jesus Christ.

We, the Reconciling Ministries Team at Crestview UMC, believing that God’s grace is extended to all persons and that the Gospel, as well as this church, should be open to all, have affiliated with the Reconciling Ministries Network.  We openly welcome full participation by people of any age, gender identity, race, ethnic origin, economic reality, family status, sexual orientation, diverse ability, and social standing.  We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.

The Crestview Methodist Reconciling Team meets quarterly for mutual support, education and community involvement to work for full inclusion.
