Our Ministries


Changing the world by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ

As United Methodists, our theological understanding obligates us, as members of the body of Christ, to communicate our faith by speaking and listening to persons both within and without the Church throughout the world to utilize all appropriate means of communications.    — Book of Discipline
