Who We Are

Our Mission and Beliefs

OUR MISSION:

Based on the Great Commission, the United Methodist Church has stated its purpose:

“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."

WHAT WE BELIEVE:

John Wesley (the founder of what we know as Methodism) and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living: on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today. We believe that our love for Jesus Christ manifests itself in sacrificial service for others!

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.
