Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

Welcome to Pataskala United Methodist Church! We are a community of imperfect people doing our best to follow the way of Jesus Christ. We believe that the life of faith is a journey. On the way, God’s grace continues to change us as we work together with the Holy Spirit to grow in our love of God, our love for each other, and our love for all creation. Each person’s faith journey is unique, and we welcome you wherever you are on the road. No journey is without its challenges, and we believe that travel is better with friends. Come and join us, and let’s continue this faith journey together!

Rev. Nicole R. Baker


I studied at United Theological Seminary in Dayton Ohio and received my Master of Divinity Degree in 2012. I have served churches in Germantown, OH; Camden, OH; and just moved from Gahanna where I was the Associate Pastor at Stonybrook UMC for the past seven years. I am looking forward to exploring the mission field in Pataskala and Licking County with this amazing group of people who trust in the promises of God. I am grateful that God loved me even before I knew that God was real and has pursued me even at my worst. I know that I don’t deserve the love and grace that God extends, but that God extends it anyway—a gift. It is my greatest desire to share the ways that God has transformed my life with that gift of grace. The transformation is incomplete, however. Faith is a journey and I hope you’ll join me wherever you are on yours. I look forward to continuing this life-changing adventure together!
