The mission of The United Methodist Church is to “Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” (Matt. 28:18-20; Matt. 22:36-40).

•             Communities that serve like Christ through justice and mercy ministries (Micah 6:8, Luke 4:17-21)

•             Inviting and inspiring worship

•             Engaged disciples in mission and  outreach

•             Gifted, empowered and equipped lay leadership
