Growing in our relationship with God,
Being the body of Christ within the world, and
Living in accordance with the example of Jesus Christ by:
To live the gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places.
John Wesley and the early Methodists were particularly concerned about inviting people to experience God’s grace and to grow in their knowledge and love of God through disciplined Christian living. They placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action.
