Learn more about the United in Faith Parish!

The Burke and Herrick Churches are a part of the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Mission: Along with all United Methodist Churches, the United in Faith Parish of the United Methodist Church seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  This mission outlined in our governing document, The Book of Discipline, has been a United Methodist distinctive since its adoption in 2008.

How we live out this mission: We live out out mission to make disciples by reaching out in mission and service to our communities by partnering with existing ministries around our communities, being present in our community, and supporting global missions.  We also grow in discipleship through our educational ministries and our worship.

Why did we come together as a parish?  The purpose of our cooperation is to work together in efforts we cannot or chose not to do separately, to reach out to our communities in mission and ministry to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

What does it mean to be a United Methodist? Our United Methodist heritage is rooted in a deep and profound understanding of God’s grace. This incredible grace flows from God’s great love for us.  We also emphasize that faith and good works belong together. What we believe must be confirmed by what we do. Personal salvation must be expressed in ministry and mission in the world. 

We are connectional churches that belong to the global United Methodist Church as well as parent conferences that all work together to live into our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
