Bluffton United Methodist Church is just that – a United Methodist Church.  We are bound by the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church; however, there is an authority which is even higher – the Holy Bible.

As one of the oldest churches in the area, Bluffton UMC has a rich HISTORY and tradition. Our church has been a source of spiritual and emotional support for the community for over a hundred years. We are committed to creating a welcoming environment for everyone who walks through our doors. Whether you are looking for a place to worship, learn, or connect with others, our church has everything you need to feel at home.

Our Faith: What We Believe

Church Steeple_edited.jpg

Bible – We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the inspired Word of God.  Through its pages, we learn, not only who God is, but how He would have us live. 

Trinity – We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Salvation – We believe that salvation comes by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8).


Sanctification – We believe that each believer is justified by faith, but then the ongoing work of living a sanctified life is through the action of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.
