"The United Methodist Church is a global denomination that opens hearts, opens minds, and opens doors through active engagement with our world. The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today."
"All of this biblical and baptismal history is the reason the Social Principles so frequently call United Methodists to act to resist evil, injustice, and oppression. We are called to witness against racism and abolish inequality and discrimination, to reject criminal justice systems based on racist policies and practices and work for restorative justice, to speak against the irresponsible use of the earth's resources and become good stewards of God's creation, and to oppose war and work for peace with justice. "
The congregation will have a common understanding that we believe in the duality of Jesus' mission on earth
