Belgrade Avenue United Methodist Church
North Mankato, MN

As a United Methodist congregation, we welcome everyone with Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors. BAUMC currently has 356 full members.  Our church is wheelchair accessible, and we have a "quiet room" available at the back of our Sanctuary for parents with restless children.

Our Church Council adopted the BAUMC mission statement, Every Member a Minister: Proclaiming, Inviting, Nurturing, Sending, in 1990, believing in the vision of shared ministry.  The heart of ministry is relations between God and people, people and people, and church people and those in the community and world. Ministry takes place through the church as our human needs encounter God's desire to meet those needs through love.  This church has discovered the miracle of ministry, and as a result the relationships involved are highly valued. The people of this church fully expect to encounter God, one another, and the world as we engage in ministry together. The result is truly life-giving!
