WHAT WE BELIEVE

As people of the United Methodist Church, we welcome you with Open Minds, Open Hearts and Open Doors! Our mission at New World UMC is to be a community of faith that transforms our world by sharing the life-changing message of God’s love that we know in Jesus Christ who is our Lord and savior. Jesus calls us to make disciples and we want to help disciples grow in their walk with Jesus, as we walk the way of Jesus together. Jesus calls us to live in love, mercy, and compassion as agents of God’s reconciling love and grace.

VISION 

To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

MISSION

To be and grow a community of faith transformed by the love of Jesus. We are transformed by the praise and worship of our Lord, witnessing to our faith, and living out Jesus’ example of service in this community. In all we say and do, we are called to “Love God, Love Neighbor, and Make Disciples.”

WORSHIP

Worshiping God is foundational for all who call Jesus Lord. Our faith community gathers for worship, praise and thanksgiving to God on Sunday mornings both in person and on-line. We also worship during holy times of the year such as Easter and Christmas. We seek God in prayer and to learn the ways of Jesus Christ, as Lord, when we read the scripture and we are called to grow in our spiritual formation.

WITNESS

Jesus calls us to live in the world. Jesus said, “I am not asking you to take them out of the world…As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” (John 17:15, 18). We are engaged in a movement to witness to the love of Jesus. Our role is not to withdraw from the world around us, but to see the ways in which every part of our lives bears witness to the world through the life we have in Jesus.

COMMUNITY

Community in the church means a shared connection in the Body of Christ. People of all ages search for a sense of community as they look to engage life in the local church. We offer community both in person and on-line for all people. We continue to search for new ways to reach people with the love of Jesus. Community is also tied to our mission. New World is focused on knowing and serving the needs of the world outside these walls as we learn how God wants us to serve.
