Welcome to Good Samaritan’s Website

Our church was founded in 1960. We chose our name because we believe we are all called to be Good Samaritans. 

We share a vision of:  

Inspiring joyful faith; Building a loving community; and Serving neighbors near and far.  

Good Samaritan Values

Good Samaritans Believe

  • As Christians, we have found an approach to God through the life and teachings of Jesus.
  • We take the Bible seriously and not literally.
  • We affirm our United Methodist heritage, that reminds us we come to faith through scripture, tradition, reason and experience.
  • We find truth and grace in the search for meaning more than in absolute certainty.
  • We recognize the faithfulness of other people who have different names for God.
  • We are stewards of God’s gifts of beauty revealed in creation and human expression.
  • We believe that the sacraments of baptism and communion are means of God’s love and grace, open to all.
  • We affirm that the way we live our lives is the fullest expression of what we believe.
