Faith’s Mission Statement

Faith UMC exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. 

What is a Disciple?

If Faith UMC exists to make disciples, then what is a disciple?  We believe a disciple is a person who:

  • Experiences the forgiveness and acceptance of God, follows the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, and demonstrates the fruit of the Spirit.
  • Shares in the life and witness of a community of disciples, including Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  • Serves in some form of ministry every day.
  • Participates in God’s suffering and transformation of the world.
  • Anticipates a future life in the presence of God.
  • And who thereby yearns to lead others to become disciples.

Faith’s Vision Statement

Uniting church and home by helping people define, strengthen, and celebrate spiritual milestones in their growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
