The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection began with four people, and today more than 30,000 people worship with us in person, online and on television each week. We have five locations in the Kansas City area, each one sharing the same unified vision and heartbeat, but offering unique ministries in its own neighborhood.
Our PURPOSE is to build a Christian community where non- and nominally religious people are becoming deeply committed Christians.
Our VISION is to be used by God to change lives, strengthen churches and transform the world.
Our JOURNEY is to know, love and serve God.
