Who We Are

Nampa First United Methodist Church is one of the oldest congregations in Nampa—having served God and this community since 1901. Tradition is important to us, yet we seek to keep our hearts, minds, and doors open to the future God is leading us into.

We are a diverse group, united by our love of God and neighbor and guided by Scripture and the Holy Spirit.

We seek to live out our faith by serving others both here in Nampa and around the world. Our desire is to lead with our hearts, keep our minds open, and welcome every person God sends through our doors.

We hope you will join us on this journey!

What We Believe

We are United Methodists, which means our beliefs are similar to most other Christian churches. We believe in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and in salvation by grace. Our teachings are grounded in Scripture, informed by Christian tradition, enlivened by personal experience, and tested by reason.

What Makes Us Unique

We emphasize God’s offer that every person can experience a loving relationship with Him. All are welcome to join us at God’s table. This means that while we consider what Christians believe to be important, right hearts are emphasized over right beliefs.
