WHAT WE BELIEVE
Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Our mission is to be the body of Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit, reaching out to all people through the sharing of God’s Word and love. Our vision is to prayerfully devote our lives to worship, spiritual maturity, nurturing one another, sharing our faith, and reaching out to those in need both locally and globally.
Our understanding of our mission and vision grows out of our core values as a connectional church with other United Methodist ministries and our understanding of what Christian discipleship means. Our heritage as United Methodists includes the Wesleyan understanding of God’s sanctifying grace. John Wesley, our Methodist founder, referred to the life of discipleship as sanctification, as Christian perfection, and as holiness of heart and life. Our Church is more than a structure; it is a living organism. The United Methodist Discipline describes our mission to proclaim the gospel and to welcome people into the body of Christ, to lead people to a commitment to God through Jesus Christ, to nurture them in Christian living by various means of grace, and to send persons into the world as agents of Jesus Christ (¶122). Thus, through our church as a Christian body, this relational mission continues.
“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. (¶120).
