Welcome to the Three Rivers District of the United Methodist Church. We are 81 congregations located in upper east Tennessee, and are part of the Holston Conference.

Our mission statement reads, “Together, we will share the love of Christ through life-changing missions and ministries, inspired worship, empowered and trained leadership and growing disciples.”

United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. Our basic beliefs are summarized by The Apostles Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.

The third day He arose from the dead.

He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
