Mission Statement:

The mission of the Church is to make disciples of  Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Local churches  provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making  occurs.iv

This is done by "proclaiming the good news of  God's grace and by exemplifying Jesus' command to love God and neighbor,  thus seeking the fulfillment of God's reign and realm in the world. The  fulfillment of God's reign and realm in the world is the vision  Scripture holds before us. The United Methodist Church affirms that  Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the World, and the Lord of  all. As we make disciples, we respect persons of all religious faiths  and we defend religious freedom for all persons. Jesus' words in Matthew  provide the Church with our mission: "Therefore, go and make disciples  of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son  and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I've  commanded you" (28:19-20), and "You must love the Lord your God with all  your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind....You must  love your neighbor as you love yourself" (22:37, 39).

Outreach:
We make disciples as we:

  • Proclaim the gospel, seek, welcome and gather persons into the body of Christ;
  • Lead persons to commit their lives to God through  baptism by water and the spirit and profession of faith in Jesus  Christ;
  • Nurture persons in Christian living through  worship, the sacraments, spiritual disciplines, and other means of  grace-send persons into the world to live lovingly and justly as  servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for  the stranger, freeing the oppressed, being and becoming a compassionate,  caring presence, and working to develop social structures that are  consistent with the gospel, and;
  • Continue the mission of seeking, welcoming, and  gathering persons into the community of the Body of Christ.
