Luverne United Methodist Church Mission Statement
We believe four ideals help us remain consistent with the United Methodist Church’s stated mission “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
LOVE – UNITE – MOTIVATE - CELEBRATE
LOVE CHRIST - We love because He first loved us. God so loved us that He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ, that through faith in Him we might have life abundant and eternal.
UNITE PEOPLE IN CHRIST – Being connected with Christ means connecting to others. The genuine Christian community is about caring, growing and sharing a whole new approach to life – as God intended. Jesus sets the agenda. WE become His students, His followers, His companions and His partners in God’s redemptive plan for the world and as a result, as we grow in God’s grace, we help grow His Kingdom.
MOTIVATE TO SERVE – Connecting with Christ and each other leads us into the world to make a difference for the better. We do this by imitating Christ; the self-giving, serving ONE who is our inspiration. Christ’s coming into the world becomes our going into the world.
CELEBRATE THE GOSPEL – Jesus Christ embodies the grace of GOD as God’s living presence among us. Through Christ’s self-giving, we connect in a way that gives us new life now and the future eternal. THAT’S THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL! That is why we worship!
At Luverne United Methodist Church our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world through:
Uniting people in Christ
Motivating to serve
Celebrating the Gospel
