Vital Congregations

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). This mission is achieved through vital congregations that equip and empower people to be disciples of Jesus Christ in their homes and communities around the world.

Vital congregations are:

  • Spirit-filled, forward-leaning communities of believers that welcome all people (Gal.3:28)
  • Places where disciples of Jesus Christ are made through the power of the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:18-20)
  • Communities that serve like Christ through justice and mercy ministries (Micah 6:8, Luke 4:17-21)

Vital congregations have:

  • Inviting and inspiring worship
  • Engaged disciples in mission and  outreach
  • Gifted, empowered and equipped lay leadership
  • Effective, equipped and inspired clergy leadership
  • Small Group ministries
  • Strong children’s & youth ministries
