New Spirit
Mission and Value
Statement
The Mission -The Mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus
Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which
disciple - making occurs.
Rationale for Our Mission - The mission of the Church is to make
disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the good news of God’s grace and
by exemplifying Jesus’ command to love God and neighbor, thus seeking
the fulfillment of God’s reign and realm in the world. The fulfillment of
God’s reign and realm in the world is the vision Scripture holds before us.
The New Spirit United Methodist Church affirms that Jesus Christ is the
Son God, The savior of the world, and the Lord of all. As we Make
disciples, we respect persons of all religious faiths and we defend religious
freedom for all persons. Jesus’ words in Matthew provide the Church with
our mission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and
teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” (28:19-20),
and “You shall love the lord your God with all your heart, and with all your
soul, and with all our mind…. And you shall love your neighbor as
yourself: (22:37,39).
Mission is our grace-filled response to the Reign of God in the world
announced by Jesus. God’s grace is active everywhere, at all times,
carrying out this purpose as revealed in the Bible. It is expressed in God’s
covenant with Abraham and Sarah, in the Exodus of Israel from Egypt,
and in the ministry of the prophets. It is fully embodied in the life, death,
and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is experienced in the ongoing creation
of a new people by the Holy Spirit.
