Our Purpose as United Methodists:

"The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the good news of God's grace and thus seeking the fulfillment of God's reign and realm in the world. Whenever United Methodism has had a clear sense of mission, God has used our Church to save persons, heal relationships, transform social structures, and spread scriptural holiness, thereby changing the world.


It is primarily at the level of the local church that the church encounters the world. The local church is the strategic base from which Christians move out to the structures of society.Therefore, the local church is to minister to persons in the community where the church is located, to provide appropriate training and nurture to all, to cooperate in ministry with other local churches, to defend God's creation and live as en ecologically responsible community, and to participate in the worldwide mission of the church, as minimal expectations of an authentic church.


It shall be responsible for ministering to all of its members, wherever they live, and for persons who choose it as their church."
See par. 200-205, The United Methodist Book of Disciplines: 1996
