United Methodists profess the historic Christian faith in God as Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We experience God as Creator/Provider, Redeemer/Savior, Sustainer/Comforter. We affirm that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Lord of all.
The Mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by proclaiming the good news of God’s grace and by exemplifying Jesus’ command to love God and our neighbor in all that we do. In carrying out this mission, we are seeking the fulfillment of God’s reign in the world.
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 faith and Christian living through worship, the sacraments, spiritual disciplines, and other means of grace, like Christian fellowship, study and prayer
send persons into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ
