Our Mission & Beliefs
“Live for Jesus, Grow Disciples, Change Lives” – It’s more than a clever by-line, it guides our decisions and plans. We hope that what we do will help you encounter Him and build relationships with those who strengthen each other in the faith.
Live For Jesus… Calling People to a life-forming relationship with Jesus being Born Again. We believe that living for Jesus begins in the community. Our family is a “loving” one, helping to accentuate that grace is available to all, not only in relationships within our own family but with the community, and the world. We live for Jesus by working together in mutual accountable relationships focused on becoming more Christ-like.
“So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as
I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one
another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” – John
We are and will be unapologetically evangelical in our approach towards transformation, calling sinners toward New Birth in Christ. But we will not settle for leaving people in the first step of their life with Jesus. One must be growing and have God’s Spirit move them towards sanctification.
Grow Disciples…Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.”- Matthew 28:19
We believe in all sorts of Groups being our ‘Discipling’ method and currently have groups meeting throughout the week. These are both Sunday Schools, Bible Studies, and Mutual Accountability groups. We want to be a multiplying congregation. The idea that we are all called to make other disciples is a marker of our own discipleship. We will be Disciples Making Disciples. In that process, we also grow into Disciples.
Change Lives… The Gospel message is one that should be sent as all are going into the world to transform it. We change lives by being sent – “Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me even so I send you.’ And when he said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit’.” – John 20:21-22
We are “a sent” people to transform our world. Our hope is to allow others to find a place to unite with God to work on creating something established but also new. We are a people dedicated to missional outreach. Our desire is not to keep people ‘coming’ to church but rather to see them ‘going’ and ‘being’ church. To take the church from a noun and put it into a verb! This is how we serve!
As Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share the following basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities:
The GMC Vision is to join God in a journey of bringing new life, reconciliation, and the presence of Christ to all people, and to helping each person reflect the character of Christ.
Through our ministries, we desire to share the whole counsel of God with all peoples and to advance the presence and fulfillment of the Kingdom of God in every part of the world and at all levels of societies and cultures. The Global Methodist Church is committed to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the inspiration and authority of the Scriptures, and the work of the Holy Spirit in conveying God’s truth and grace to all people.
We are a global church that recognizes and deploys the gifts and contributions of each part of the church, working as partners in the gospel with equal voice and leadership. Our witness to the world is marked by mutual love, concern, sharing, and a focus on those who are most vulnerable. We watch over one another in love and bear witness to the transforming power of the Good News as we humbly, but boldly, strive to serve others as ambassadors of Christ!
The Mission of the Global Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.
In our worship, we desire to surrender to and be fully devoted to one God-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are passionate about what is important to God.
Jesus calls those who follow Him to love God wholeheartedly and love their neighbors as themselves. Our desire is to demonstrate to the world the extravagant love of God in the person of Jesus Christ.
We have been entrusted with a lifesaving and transforming message that we must share with others. Our witness is bold, compelling and fearless. Our mission advances when individuals become disciples of Jesus Christ and join God’s mission to make more disciples.
