Centenary United Methodist Church is a Christ-centered community of believers united in a common desire to grow in the knowledge, love, and joy of our Lord. We believe we are called to nurture one another in Christian faith so that we may be equipped for lives of discipleship, to proclaim the “good news” of Jesus Christ to all; to read and follow the teachings of the Holy Scriptures; to open to the ever-present leading and inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and to be in service to others after the example of Christ.

What We Believe

Centenary United Methodist Church is a diverse community guided by the Holy Spirit. We are committed to growing spiritually and to sharing our love, gifts, and talents through service and mission, after the example of Jesus Christ.

“They’ll know we are Christians by our faith.” We will grow closer to God as a community, inspired through worship, music, education, and prayer, no matter where we are on our faith journeys, individually or collectively.

“They’ll know we are Christians by our hope.” We will positively impact our local and global community through outreach and service, continuing the work of Christ. Together, we will make a difference by sharing God’s unconditional love.

“They’ll know we are Christians by our love.” Our community knows no boundaries. We celebrate our multi-cultural and multi-generational identity and will welcome and nurture all of God’s children who come through our doors with infinite love.

1 Corinthians 13:13 – “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Centenary United Methodist Church traces its beginnings to 1866. In the year following the end of the American Civil War, the certificate of incorporation for Centenary Methodist Episcopal Church (as it was then known) was signed. The Metuchen congregation took the name of Centenary because 1866 was the hundredth anniversary of the first Methodist Society meeting in America. Continue Reading…
