Mission and Ministry

United Methodists affirm, "The ministry of all Christians consists of service for the mission of God in the world" (United Methodist Book of Discipline 2016, ¶133).

We seek to live lovingly and justly as servants of Jesus Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed, being a compassionate presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel.
