Our Beliefs

We believe that we were created by God to "Live and Love Like Jesus." As a United Methodist congregation, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

[Editorial note: The document below is a redaction from a summary of Union’s history compiled by Mr. Sam Dusenbury for the From Jesus to Union history class (2012). This reposting should provide you, the reader, with a brief yet thorough understanding of this congregation's rich history.]

 

A Summary of Union United Methodist Church’s History

  • A Historical Overview:

Union United Methodist Church is neither the oldest nor the largest church in Horry County, but it is one of the richest in tradition, fellowship and dedication of its members.  Records indicate that the first church located on or near the present site of Union was a brush arbor "meeting place" which was established in 1756.  This church was established because the five mile trip from what is now Toddville to Kingston, now Conway, was a long and difficult journey over the deplorable roads of that day.

In 1992, James wed the love of his life, Claire, and began the adventure of a lifetime. He was called to youth ministry in 2000 and served for five years as Director of Youth Ministries at St Matthew UMC in Greenville, S.C. During that time, he attended Erskine Theological Seminary, earning a Master of Divinity degree in May 2006.
