MISSION & BELIEFS

 

OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF Jesus Christ FOR THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE WORLD

our church does this by:

  • Helping people belong in community

  • Giving opportunities to grow in Christ

  • Helping others to serve one another

  • Finding opportunities to go in mission to those in need

Beliefs United methodists Share with Other Christians:

  • Belief in the Triune God -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit

  • Faith in the mystery of salvation in and through Jesus Christ
  • The belief that God’s redemptive love is realized in life by the activity of the Holy Spirit individually and communally.

  • The recognition that the reign of God as both a present and future reality.

  • The recognition of the authority of Scripture in matters of faith and practice.

  • The celebration of the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.

Our DISTINCTIVE united methodist heritage and beliefs:

  • Grace is central to our understanding of Christian faith and life.

    • John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist  movement, described God’s grace as threefold:

      • Prevenient grace

      • Justifying grace

      • Sanctifying grace

  • We understand the Christian life as one in which faith and love are put into action.

  • United Methodists insist that faith and good works belong together.

  • Because of what God has done for us, we offer our lives back to God through a life of service.

  • United Methodists grow in faith through the interpretation of Scripture by:

    • Remembering Tradition

    • Using our God-given reason

    • Integrating our experiences
