Vision for EUMC
The Evangelical United Methodist Church will develop an atmosphere of
worship for its members, families and friends to grow in Christ and for Christ.
God's Mission for
The Evangelical United Methodist Church will provide a nurturing and
stimulating Christian environment that challenges each of its members to reach
out to people with "open hands, open hearts, open doors" and receive
them in the name of Jesus Christ, to relate them to God, to nurture and
strengthen them in their journey of discipleship, and to send them into the
world to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.
What We Believe
We believe that God is the creator of the world - a world that is good
because God created it. Our responsibility is to care for the world that God
has entrusted to our keeping.
We believe that, inside and outside the sanctuary, Jesus Christ is our Lord and
Savior. We accept the wholeness that God's forgiveness can restore - a
forgiveness made concrete in the life and death of Jesus.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is our day to day companion who guides,
directs and empowers our lives and sustains our being.
We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ as the affirmation of God's
redemptive love for all of human kind.
We believe that the Bible is the word of God. It is the primary source
wherein we find God's wisdom and truth that leads us to everlasting life.
We believe that our faith can be given direction within the church family
and our discipleship expressed in our daily living.
We believe that faith in Christ is bound to be expressed in outward acts of love
- that personal salvation lead us into a mission of evangelical witness, caring
service and social action.
We believe our worship is the renewal of our covenant relationship with God.
