What We Believe

Our Mission: How We Respond to God’s Call: Hennepin Church invites and seeks to serve all people on a spiritual journey.

Our Vision: How We See Ourselves: Our congregation will be a diverse and progressive Christian faith community welcoming all people. We envision a place that is exciting, providing opportunities to share an encounter with the Spirit that we find in Jesus Christ, in humanity, in all of creation, and in the mysterious ways that God appears to us.

Our Position Statement: How to Evaluate All that We Do: We seek to be Relevant, Inclusive, and Beautiful in all we do.

Hennepin is a Reconciling Congregation, welcoming the full participation of all persons including the GLBT Community..

Hennepin Avenue United Methodist church is part of a connectional church body. We are connected to all other United Methodist churches worldwide through our General Conference. Each congregation is part of an Annual Conference, ours being the Minnesota Annual Conference. The Minnesota Annual Conference meets yearly and the General Conference meets every four years. These gatherings nominate leadership, create policy and procedures for the church, create a focus for mission, and celebrate in worship together.
