What We Believe


Mission & Vision:

UNITED METHODIST CHURCH MISSION STATEMENT: 

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world

OUR MISSION:

To know Jesus and to make Him known

OUR VISION: 

- To be devoted to Christ

- To be committed to one another

- To be dedicated to reaching those outside God’s family with the gospel of Jesus Christ

- To be persistent in moving those within God’s family toward a Christ-centered life

HOW OUR MINISTRIES ARE IMPLEMENTED TO ACCOMPLISH THIS MISSION:

Reach – World Missions and Community outreach

Worship – Congregational gathering offering adoration and praise to God

Connect – Bringing the body together to build genuine relationships

Grow – Growing and transforming the body through teaching

Serve – Providing care and support for the body and the community

HOW THIS IS LIVED OUT IN OUR CHURCH (CORE VALUES):

1. DEVOTED TO CHRIST

Because Jesus laid down His life for us, we gladly devote our lives to Him.

2. BIBLICALLY BASED

Because the Bible is crucial to our knowing and following God, our worship, teaching and preaching must be biblically based and culturally relevant so that it can be understood by everyone while never sacrificing the doctrinal truths and core beliefs upon which this church was founded.

3. COMMITTED TO PRAYER

Because we are helpless without Christ and His Holy Spirit working in us, we seek Him in every aspect of our lives as individuals and as a church.

4. LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

Because Godly leaders are vital to the health and growth of the church, we pursue humble men and women to lead us, seeking those whom the Holy Spirit has chosen, equipped and empowered with the qualities required for biblical leadership.

5. EVERY PERSON MATTERS 

Because all people are created in the image of God and are treasured by Him, we treasure them as well, loving them, accepting them and guiding them to Jesus. 

6. A LOVING COMMUNITY

Because Christians are to be known by their love for one another, we will always love and humbly serve each other.

7. SERVING TOGETHER

Because everyone benefits when we use the gifts God has given us, we work together to sharpen those gifts and provide opportunities to use them.

8. MOTIVATED BY EXCELLENCE

Because people’s opinions of God are often influenced by the quality of our work, we strive for excellence in all we do, believing this will bring glory to God and draw people to Him.
