|Passion for Christ, Compassion for All
United Methodist faith is deeply rooted in the Scripture and in the
beliefs of all Christians. Out of that theology and the faith have
specific actions that mark United Methodists as Christians engaged in
to the world. Our passion for Christ calls us as a community to
live out our faith for the transformation of the world.
Christianity is a
religion based on communal faith. It is together in community that we
grow in our faith and understanding of our relationship to God and one
another. Over the years, the congregation members have worked
side-by-side together to build God's Kingdom and spread God's Word.

support various church projects and general operations. Each year

From its very
beginnings, CCUMC was founded with the call to meet the needs of the
community outside the walls of the church as a way to share the love of
God and introduce people to Jesus Christ. Over the years, CCUMc
has ministered to the local and global community from Oakland's
Chinatown to places as far as Uganda and Palestine. In touching
the lives of others, we too grow in our faith and understanding of
God's love and compassion.
