God’s Vision:
For you to have New Life in Jesus Christ.
Our God Given Mission:
“To offer New Life in Jesus Christ by Seeking, Shaping, and Sending Disciples.”
Our Core Values:
Mark 12:30-31 (New International Version) tells us we are to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Our Faith:
United Methodists share a common heritage with other Christians, including Biblically based knowledge of God’s mercy and love for all people, a belief in Him as a triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We have faith in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ, and celebrate as the Holy sacraments of Baptism and Communion as a family of believers.
Our United Methodist heritage is rooted in a deep and profound understanding of God’s grace. This incredible grace flows from God’s great love for us. The United Methodist Church is an 11-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors and opens minds through active engagement with our world. John Wesley and early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, putting faith and love into action, which has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
